Something I made up for those cold winter evenings.
- 3 cups water
- 2-3 Parsnips
- Cup of Lentils (brown or red are good)
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped small
- Dash of Salt
- Dash of Pepper
- 1 Tsp Turmeric
- 1 Tsp Garam masala powder
Heat ghee in pan.
Make a paste with a small amount of water, garam masala and turmeric powder. Add it to the heated ghee and stir. (this is the most important step in cooking a curry. Skip it, and you will waste the flavors in the spices.)
Add onion. Sweat until golden.
Add chopped parsnips, lentils and water, along with remaining spices. Bring to boil, then simmer for 45 mins.
Serve with chopped chives.
