How to make it

  • In a soup pot heat the olive oil (or melt the butter) and cook the onions until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, garam masala, coriander and peppers and cook gently for another minute or two until fragrant.
  • All the lentils, tomatoes and stock. Stir and bring to a simmer, then simmer gently, partially covered, for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the lentils are tender but not falling apart.
  • Add the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Optionally serve with a dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream.

    Serranos would give it a nice kick. I love lentils and this is similar to an Egyptian red lentil dish I make.. I like the flavor combo in your recipe... High Five.....
