1 cup brown lentils
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 (14 ounce)can diced tomatoes with jalapenos
4 cups cooked diced chicken or turkey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
Cooked basmati rice

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the lentils and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until the lentils are just tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the curry powder to onions and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the cooked lentils, tomatoes, chicken (or turkey) and salt. Cook, stirring often, until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt. Serve over basmati rice.

Serves 4.
