Packaged cooked lentils can be a real time-saver and are becoming more available. If you can't find them in your area, use regular lentils cooked according to the package directions.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add spices and toast until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion and garlic and cook until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add carrot, peas, lentils, salt, and remaining 2 tbsp. oil, stirring to combine. Stir in paneer and cook 2 minutes.

Step 2

*Find cooked lentils at Trader Joe's. Find paneer--a fresh cheese that's pressed until firm--at well-stocked grocery stores or Indian markets.

Step 3

Loved this, but not crazy about tofu or paneer. Next time I make this I will add chicken and serve with fresh diced tomatoes on top!

Good and tasty vegetarian dish, but I would cut back on the onions if I were to make again. They were a bit over powering.
