In this vibrant dish, we’re tossing hearty green lentils with sweet peppers and onion cooked in tomato paste and tomato chutney—itself a combination of sweet tomatoes, tart tamarind, spicy chiles, and more. We’re serving it all over a layer of tangy sheep’s milk yogurt, then topped with a fried egg.

In a bowl, combine the yogurt and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the tomato paste; cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and fragrant. Add the tomato chutney and 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper.
