 Beet Curry
 2 c. yellow lentils
 8 c. water
 1 T. turmeric
 bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally to keep
 the lentils from sticking to the pot, which should be large.
 While it simmers, prepare:
 4 large beets cut into large dice
 1 large onion cut into large dice
 5 (or more) large cloves garlic, pressed
 Spray a frying pan lightly with oil spray.  Pop 2 T. black mustard seeds over
 medium-high heat.  Add garlic and onions, saute for a minute or so, then
 add beats and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for
 about 10 min.  Add contents of the frying pan to the lentil pot.  Also add:
 2 T. cumin
 1 T. coriander
 5-10 dried red chilies, crushed
 salt to taste
 simmer until the lentils start to disintegrate.
 Serve with basmati rice...
