Preparation:

Boil about 1-1 ½ liter of water in the kettle. Place all dry ingredients in a saucepan, having minced the shallots, split the garlic cloves in two, and thoroughly rinsed the lentils in a colander.

Then pour the coconut milk and about 1 liter of boiling water. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally. Monitor the thickness of the dish and if necessary, add hot water. I usually do it 1-2 times.

Cook for about 30 minutes, adjusting the thickness of the dish according to taste. This coconut milk lentil stew is full of flavors and we love it either at room temperature or hot.
