Easy Garam Masala Lentils

This is a super easy recipe to make with only 6 ingredients including the salt. The coconut oil is important because it adds a depth to the flavor even though we cannot taste it necessarily. Just like a tasty cut of beef is the one that is really marbled. Nevertheless, this recipe is vegan and amazingly tasty, especially with naan.

If you do not have any naan, you can make “fake naan” with flour tortillas heated in a frying pan with some garlic and coconut oil.


2 cups lentils (any kind available)

1/2” long (approximately) piece of ginger peeled and finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)

4 cloves of garlic finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)

2 teaspoons Garam Masala seasoning

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/4 teaspoon pink sea salt (or to taste)


Rinse and drain lentils in a 3 quart pot about 3 times, or until water looks mostly clear.

Rinse the lentils until the water is pretty clear. It should only be about 3 rinses.

Add about 1” to 1 1/2” of water over the lentils. Or about as deep as the last digit of your pointer finger.

Add ginger, garlic, Garam Masala seasoning, and coconut oil.

Bring to boil, then cover and reduce to simmer for about 20 minutes or until the water is evaporated from the bottom (but not scorched) and the lentils are cooked through.

Check and add more water if they are not soft but the water is evaporated.

Add salt to taste.
