Sweet and Sour Lentil Curry with Tortilla

Sweet and Sour lentil curry with tortilla involves less hazardous preparation than your normal tortilla experience. It is a perfectly recipe to enjoy at lunch or dinner. This recipe is the basic edition. Usually lentils get soft in 10-15 minutes, but the more you will let it simmer the tastier they are. What you need to consider for this recipe however is the consistency of the curry- which is a subject to personal preferences. You can adjust your preferred consistency by increasing the heat or adding more water after 30 minutes. Again the possibilities for personalizing it are limitless, so go creative and invent your own signature dish.
