Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cooking the spices together before they are added to the wonderful ingredients gives this curry its wonderful flavor.

    Lentil stew keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze it in airtight containers for up to 3 months.
