In large pot, heat oil over medium heat; fry onions, garlic, mushrooms, ginger, curry paste, salt and pepper, stirring often, until liquid is evaporated, 10 minutes.

Add stock, 3 cups (750 mL) water, lentils and barley; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until lentils and barley are tender, about 1 hour. Add water to make 20 cups (5 L), if necessary. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes. Divide among five 4-cup/1 L airtight containers. Refrigerate, uncovered, until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Reheat before serving.

Garnish: Top each bowl with yogurt and green onion.
