This is my first try with dahl- I'm all about the cheap dried legumes nowadays- I think it turned out very nicely. I'm eating it atop jasmine rice with some kale and sriracha

Saute together:

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 c lentils
water to cover
1 t cumin
1 t coriander
2 t curry
1/4t cayenne
1/2 t grated ginger
1 t salt

boil for about 15 minutes or until lentils are soft, stirring often
add more water if necessary
adjust seasoning as needed

Bake 15 minutes at 275, stirring regularly

cayenne pepper
