  • 2 tbs corn oil
  • 2" piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 small red chilies, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2/3 cup red lentils
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbs hot curry paste
  • 1 cup less
  • 1 tbs coconut creame
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
