Number of Servings: 4


    * 1 cup red lentils
    * 1 slice ginger, 1 inch piece, peeled
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
    * 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
    * 4 teaspoons dried minced onion
    * 1 teaspoon cumin seeds


1. Rinse lentils thoroughly and place in a medium saucepan along with ginger, turmeric, salt and cayenne pepper. Cover with about 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Skim off any foam that forms on top of the lentils. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and soupy.

2. Meanwhile, in a microwave safe dish combine oil, dried onion and cumin seeds. Microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute; be sure to brown, but not burn, onions. Stir into lentil mixture.
