Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut in thin wedges
  • 1 lb sliced fresh mushrooms (white or crimini)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3-4 Tbs mild Indian curry paste

  • 1 can (19 oz) lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt

Directions

  • In large deep non-stick saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir-fry 2-3 minutes and then add mushrooms and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in garlic, 3 tbsp curry paste and cinnamon; then add quartered chicken thighs and stir-fry 2-3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes with juice; cover and reduce heat to medium-low and cook about 10 minutes. Taste and stir in more curry if desired.
