I like to buy my spices in bulk, and keep an inexpensive coffee grinder on hand just for spices.
Get your spices all together.
And your ginger, onion, and garlic. Garlic is just for show...I didn't use it!
Now you're ready!
Add the spices and fry for a minute. Then add the washed lentils.
Add 1-2 cups of water and one Knorr Homestyle Stock pot (chicken or veg).
Stir and simmer for 20 minutes.
Oops..add the spices you forgot!
Yummy on it's own of with sag and rice!
