Ingredients

    1/2 cup red lentils
    1/4 cup yellow lentils
    2 cups water
    1 tsp ginger pulp
    1 tsp garlic
    1/4 tsp turmeric
    1/4 tsp garam masala or mild curry powder

Directions

Rinse and pick through the lentils. Boil them together with the ginger, garlic, green chiles, turmeric, and garam masala for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, saute the onion, tomato, mustard seeds, and dried chiles quickly over high heat, just until they develop some color. Puree the lentils, if desired, and stir in the sauteed veggies. Garnish with cilantro. Yields four 1-cup servings.
