Everything you need to make the most important meal of the day delicious.

This brunch is a wonderful way to start off a lazy Sunday. Lentils, simmered with aromatics, won't just fill your kitchen with wonderful enticing smells—they make a perfect dipping sauce for a side of delicate and savory sweet potato fritters.

Garam masala is a spice mixture that is popular in North Indian and South Asian cuisines. Most well-stocked spice markets should have it, but if you can't find it easily, you can try making your own. It's typically a ground mixture of peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, cumin, and cardamom.
