I eat soup the whole year. I made this yesterday. A tasty soup that is lighter than it appears.
Red Lentil Dal
1½ cups red lentils
1½ tsp fresh ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp cilantro
Place the lentils in a saucepan and add 4 cups of water.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the ginger.
Cover the pan and simmer until the lentils are soft and have turned yellow, 15 to 20 minutes.
Add the coriander, onion powder, turmeric, cumin, garlic powder, salt to taste, and 1 cup water if the dal is very thick. Simmer for about 10 minutes more to blend the flavors.
Stir in the lemon juice and cilantro. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve hot, with rice or bread.
