How to Make It
Thoroughly rinse the red lentils in a fine-holed colander. Set aside.
Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and then stir in the onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes or until the carrots begin to soften.
Stir in the chicken and curry powder. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until the chicken is browned.
Stir in chicken stock and fish sauce and bring to a moderate boil. Reduce heat and stir in the lentils. Stirring occasionally, cook on a gentle simmer for 20 minutes, or until lentils are soft.
