Peel sweet potato, potato, carrot and onion, and cut them into similar in size, small pieces. Mince garlic, and grate ginger and turmeric (if using). Heat up 1 tbsp of avocado oil in a large sauté pan or Dutch oven, and sauté onion, carrot and potatoes for about 5 minutes. Push vegetables to the edges of your pan to create some space in the center. Add 1/2 tbsp oil to the middle, and fry garlic, ginger and curry powder for 1 minute until fragrant, before mixing it with the rest. Add lentils, water or broth, and bring everything to a boil. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Turn off the heat, stir in coconut milk, and let curry sit for 5 minutes.
Then add chopped cilantro and fresh lemon juice and turmeric (if using), and season to taste with salt, black pepper and a bit of chili. Enjoy!
