  1. In a medium rondeau or wide braising pan, add stock, water, and lentils and cook on a simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. In a separate pan, add chicken, oil, and onion and cook until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, garlic, ginger, garam masala, chili powder, and turmeric. Cook until fragrant, approximately 1 minute.
  3. Transfer chicken with spices to the rondeau with the lentils. Add tomato sauce and bring up to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in heavy cream and heat through.
  5. Scoop out ⅔ of the center of each portion of loaf.
