Green Lentil Curry


Greens are a part of my daily diet. Cooking them differently becomes a challenge sometimes. Staying in Bangalore, i have had the opportunity to taste different kinds of greens. Every green that i ve tasted has a distinct taste. Today i have recreated one of the recipes from one of the naturopathy recipes that i ve tasted.
