This was a very easy and tasty way to use up the red lentils I had! I didn't have curry paste, so I looked up substitutes and found out that curry pastes aren't actually used in Indian cooking (which was the taste I was going for). So, I made a few substitutions: instead of the curry paste, garlic and ginger, I added some vegetable curry powder (in addition to the curry powder already called for) and a double dose of ginger-garlic paste (which I had in the fridge). I also did not add as much tomato paste because I use the tube stuff that you can keep in the fridge. My curry came out very thick, but I could have just added some water to make it more sauce-like. Mine was also spicy even with just a pinch of the Indian chili powder I had, so I will probably omit that next time to make it more kid-friendly (although for others it will depend on the potency of your spices...mine were straight from India and very spicy). It was very quick, easy, and my family loved it!
