Two Lentil Dahl

Makes 4 servings.

1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
a 2″ chunk of ginger, finely chopped (half reserved for towards the end of cooking)
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons tumeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup red lentils
1 cup brown lentils
7 cups water

Sauté the onion until soft. Add the garlic and half the ginger and stir for a minute longer, then add the spices and stir for another minute over low heat.

Add the lentils and water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 30-40 minutes. Stir through the rest of the ginger. This is really nice poured on top of baked potatoes and silverbeet.
