In a dutch oven, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil. Season pork pieces, with salt, pepper and chili powder. Add seasoned pork and sear the meat until it's brown. Remove meat from dutch oven and set aside.
Add remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil to dutch oven and heat. Add garam masala and cumin and stir. Add the onion, garlic, carrot and jalapeno pepper, stir well and cook until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add lentils, meat and vegetable broth to dutch oven and stir. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed. Cover and cook until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and serve over rice or plain.
