Indian Curry Sauce


  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbs ground coriander
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 cup split red or yellow lentils
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
 This is a versatile sauce full of Indian and Caribbean flavors that can be used with meats, fish, and vegetables. It freezes well, so you can prepare in advance.


  • Heat a large sauce pan, add the oil and saute the onion and garlic for about 4 minutes, being careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Add the spices and saute for 2 minutes more.
  • Add the lentils and stock, bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until the lentils are very soft and almost falling apart. About 30 minutes.
  • Add the yogurt and mix well, using low heat.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
