Method

Bring about 1/2 cup water to a boil in a skillet. Add the onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onion seems translucent. Most of the water will have evaporated.

Stir in the garam marsala and cook about a minute. Now add the diced tomatoes, undrained, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and add the collard green strips. Cover and cook for 25-30 minutes, until the collards are nice and limp.

While the collard mix cooks, combine the lentils in a saucepan with about 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer. Cook for about 8 minutes until the lentils are tender. Stir the lentils into the collards mix and plate it up.
