  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic and cook until it turns golden brown, about 45 seconds. Add the chorizo sausage; cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Stir in celery and cook until the celery softens, about 4 minutes more.
  2. Pour off any excess fat from the chorizo, then add the lentils and water. Season with turmeric, curry powder and cumin. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 40 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
