Instructions
  1. Rinse lentils in a strainer until the water runs clear.
  2. Toast cumin seeds and cinnamon stick in a pot on medium-high until fragrant.
  3. Add oil, onions and salt and sweat until onions are translucent.
  4. Add in your garlic and ginger and cook for another minute.
  5. Add lentils and mix in the pot while continuing to toast.
  6. Mix in the rest of your dried spices (except the nutritional yeast) and cook until they become fragrant. Once fragrant, very quickly add your coconut milk and water (or stock).
  7. Add in your nutritional yeast and bring the pot up to a boil. Once at a boil, drop to a simmer and simmer until lentils are fully cooked, stirring occasionally. Approximately 15-20 minutes.
  8. Serve over rice or with Naan or roti.
