- Onions / Carrots / Jalapenos / Garlic / Ginger - Prep as directed. Combine onions and carrots in one container. Store jalapenos, garlic and ginger in a second container. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Make spice mix - Combine coriander, garam masala, cumin and turmeric. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Potatoes - Peel and cube potatoes. If not using the potatoes right away, soak in water to prevent browning.
- Peas - Defrost if using frozen. Drain and rinse if using canned.
- Naan - Slice into wedges.
- Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add butter and then onions and carrots to butter. Saute until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add jalapenos, garlic and spice mix and saute for ~1 minute more.
- Pour stock and soy sauce over vegetables. Add potatoes and lentils. Bring to a simmer and cover. Simmer until lentils and potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
- While stew simmers, chop tomatoes and cilantro. Combine and season with a pinch of salt.
- If you'd like the naan toasted, spread it on a sheet pan and toast it under the broiler just until warm.
- Return to stew and stir in peas. Continue cooking until heated through.
- Remove stew from heat and stir in lime juice. Taste and season with some salt and pepper.
- Ladle stew into bowls. Top bowls with a spoonful of yogurt and tomato / cilantro mixture. Serve with naan wedges. Enjoy!
Skipped the stock because I was out. Also added the tomatoes at the same time as the jalapeno, so that it cooked in. This made a delicious stew.0 Helpful

I'm not a huge fan of peas, so next time I think I'll make this using lima beans instead. Good flavor.0 Helpful
