Notes
*Do not substitute the red lentils with green or golden lentils.
**After purchase, let the can of coconut milk to rest for at least several hours (in the fridge or in a dry space). When you open the can, be careful not to shake it. A thick layer of coconut cream will float above coconut water. Scoop out the coconut cream and use it for the sauce. Save the coconut water for another recipe.
