Spicy Potato, Lentil & Coconut Curry

I love the flavour of coconut curries. :)  So here goes:

2 tbs olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped finely
2 tsp grated dried ginger
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp dried crushed chili
1 tsp curry powder
3 medium potatoes, peeled & cut into+- 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 cup orange lentils, uncooked
300 ml canned diced tomatoes
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup veggie stock
1 tsp salt
5 drops liquid stevia extract
1 1/2 cups basmati rice, cooked separately

1.   Heat oil and fry onions until they're translucent.  Add the ginger, chili and all the spices, mix, and cook for about another minute.
2.   Add potato and lentils, and stir to coat them with the spices.
3.   Add tomatoes, coconut milk, stock, salt, stevia and bring to the boil.  Cover with lid and simmer until potatoes are tender, while stirring frequently.  I forgot to time it. :(  But it could have been about 1 hour.  Serve over rice.

This is so filling and SO delicious!
