Bombay Chicken with Red Lentils

This is another recipe that I have had saved for a long time. It's a really good chicken and lentil curry dish, and next time I make it I think I will add cauliflower in with the green beans, maybe some diced potatoes also, as I love vegetable curries.

1 1/4 cups red lentils
1 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, diced
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ginger
6 cups water
4 chicken breasts, cooked
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
2  garlic cloves
1/2 tsp red pepper
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/2 cup fresh green beans
Combine the lentils, onion, jalapeno, ground cumin, turmeric, ginger and 6 cups water in a large pot. Simmer for 45 minutes. Add the cooked chicken chicken and salt.
Put a tablespoon of oil in a small pan, when very hot add the cumin seeds, when they start to sizzle add the garlic and cook for aminute or two. Add in the red pepper and immediately add into the chicken and lentils. Stir in the lemon juice, sugar, garam marsala and green beans and simmer for 10 minutes. Top with cilantro and serve.
