Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer gently until the lentils are mushy and the potatoes are done, about 20 to 25 minutes. If the soup is too thick, adjust the consistency with a small amount of water. Puree all ingredients in blender and serve hot over steamed greens or brown rice or alone. Recipe can easily be made vegan with the substitution of vegetable stock or water instead of the chicken stock. Recipe is similar to traditional dal.
