easy curry, parts 2 and 3

two variations on the aforementioned easy curry.
first one is with lentils, second one is with about a cup total of kidney beans and black beans. they both have half an onion, one carrot, and about 1/4 cup trader joe's punjab spinach sauce.

saute your vegetables until just starting to get soft, about 5-10 minutes. add your legumes, stir, add your sauce, and heat, stirring for about 3 minutes. top with your favorite chutney (i used suki's mint chutney and i looked, but can't find a website for them. its available at the ferry building farmer's market in san francisco though) or plain yogurt and almonds.
this is one of the things i make when i need a quick lunch and want to use up some leftovers. just throw pretty much whatever veggies you have in there, add some beans or lentils (trader joe's sells pre-cooked lentils which makes this dish super fast and easy), and your favorite indian sauce, and you have a warm, comforting, and healthy lunch.

I'll be at the Ferry building in Sanfran this Sept. I'll keep my eyes open for this mint chutney. Sounds delicious!
