Dhal with vegetable topping

Submitted by: LEAKAY59

Introduction

I went looking for a fairly mild recipe for an upset tummy day. This looked pretty safe, except maybe for the red pepper flakes and a whole onion, so I decided to give it a try.

Ingredients

    Dahl:

    1.5 cup Red lentils
    2.5 cup Water
    1 inch piece of Ginger Root, grated
    1 tsp Ground Turmeric,
    1 large clove Garlic, crushed

    Vegetable topping:

    2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Ripe Tomato, cut in 8 wedges
    1 medium Onion, sliced
    .5 tsp Red Pepper flakes
    Fresh Cilantro for garnish if you have it.

Directions

1) Put lentils, water, ginger, turmeric, and garlic in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, until lentils are soft.
2) Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher, adding a little hot water if too thick. Keep hot.
3) To make the topping, heat oil in a saute pan until hot, then add tomato, onion, and red pepper flakes and stir-fry over medium heat for about two minutes (or until vegetables are to your liking).
4) Put lentils in a serving dish, top with vegetables and serve immediately. Garnish with cilantro if you wish.

Makes four servings as a side dish, or two as a main dish, or if you have the calories to spare.
