 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 c Brown lentils
  • 3 3/4 c Water
  • 1 ts Turmeric
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed

  • 1 lg Onion, chopped

Wash lentils in cold water.

In a saucepan, combine lentils, water, turmeric and garlic. Cover and
simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Uncover and cook 2-3 minutes
to reduce excess liquid.

Heat ghee in a saucepan. Add onion and fry gently 5 minutes. Add Garam
Masala, ginger, coriander and cayenne pepper; cook gently 1 minute. Add
mixture to lentils and stir well. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

NOTE: For a less fiery flavor, reduce cayenne pepper.
