Curried Lentils

1/4 cup oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 bay leaves, chopped
2 tomatoes, quartered
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 1/2 ponds dried lentils, those with a reddish cast, cleaned and drained

1 onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
8 whole cloves
2 to 4 tablespoons Madras-style curry powder
6 1/4 cups water, approximately
2 pounds dried lentils
2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

Heat the oil in a heavy three-to-four quart saucepan until hot.
Add the onion and heat until lightly browned.

Add the garlic, ginger, bay leaves and cloves and cook one minute.
Add tomatoes and continue cooking.

Mix the curry powder and turmeric with one-quarter cup of the water.
Add curry powder mixture to the pan and cook, stirring, three
minutes, adding a tablespoon of water if necessary to prevent
sticking.

Add the lentils and salt and cook two minutes. Add remaining water.
Bring to a boil, cover and simmer one hour or until lentils are
tender and the liquid is absorbed. More water may be added during
the cooking if necessary.

Yield: Eight servings.
