YES! This looks awesome! I'm always looking for good recipies for lentils. Mm, sweet potatoes and coconut milk! It sounds so tasty. I think I may have to make it this weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to find the red curry paste. I've had trouble finding it in stores before.. which is why I've never used it :(
