Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ cup Brown lentils
3¾ cup Water
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1 \N Garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons Ghee
1 large Onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Garam Masala
½ teaspoon Ground ginger
1 teaspoon Coriander
½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
\N \N Fresh cilantro sprigs (opt)

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.
