Vadouvan curry is often called “the French interpretation” of curry powder. In addition to the typical elements of Indian curry powder such as turmeric, curry leaves, coriander and cumin, Vadouvan also includes shallots. Look for Vadouvan in the spice aisle of a well-stocked grocery store or online.
Yellow and red lentils have a mild taste and are the quickest cooking of all the lentil varieties. Always rinse dried lentils in a sieve with running water to remove any dust or debris before cooking.
