In Indian cooking, most meat and legume dishes are cooked slowly. Here the emphasis is on creating meals in a much shorter time. This is easy for meals just using vegetables. For meals with legumes, we’ll be using quick cooking red lentils and whole green lentils, as well as canned chickpeas. The level of fat is kept low.
