Directions

Wash lentils in water, then put them in a pot with 2 cups of water. Cook them slowly until they are soft.
Don't close the lid of pot, it will boil over.
If water doesn't look enough to cook lentils, you can always add some more.
Pour lentils in a blender, and blend well.
In the same pot, pour canola oil and add white flour, then cook the flour by whisking until it becomes light brown, but don't burn it.
Then pour the lentils inside the pot, and adjust the consistency with some hot water. (It is good when it is thick).
Season with salt, and serve with lemon wedges.
Enjoy!
