Rinse the lentils in a sieve and pour into a pot of boiling water. Cover and simmer gently over low heat about 25 minutes.
Rinse the chard, trim, cut the leaves into strips and the stems into matchsticks. Set some leaf strips aside for garnish. Rinse, clean and halve the tomatoes. Cut the lemon into thin rings. Peel onion, ginger and garlic and finely chop together. Sauté together with the lemongrass in hot oil until soft in a deep pan. Add turmeric, cumin and chili powder, sauté briefly and pour in the coconut milk. Add chard stalks, season with salt and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the chard leaves with the tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes more. Adjust seasonings.
Drain lentils and divide among bowls. Add the curry and serve sprinkled with the remaining chard.
