EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Some legumes (dried beans) are soaked before cooking. Lentils and dried peas don't require soaking.

For a stronger curry flavor, use 2 tablespoons of curry powder.

Acidic ingredients such as tomatoes, prevent legumes such as lentils from cooking until they are tender. Add the tomatoes after the lentils have cooked completely.
