1 1/4 cups brown lentils
3 3/4 cups water
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 clove garlic -- crushed
2 tablespoons ghee
1 large onion -- chopped
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bunch fresh cilantro sprigs -- (opt)

Preparation / Directions:

Wash lentils in cold water. In a saucepan, combine lentils, water, turmeric and garlic. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Uncover and cook 2-3 minutes to reduce excess liquid. Heat ghee in a saucepan. Add onion and fry gently 5 minutes. Add Garam Masala, ginger, coriander and cayenne pepper; cook gently 1 minute. Add mixture to lentils and stir well. Garnish with cilantro, if desired. NOTE: For a less fiery flavor, reduce cayenne pepper.
