    For TADKA of Cumin-Garlic

    • 5 tablespoons light vegetable oil or 5 tablespoons ghee
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    • 5 -6 large garlic cloves, peeled and thickly sliced
    • 2 -3 dried small red peppers

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pick over, clean, and rinse the split peas.
    2. 2
      Place them in a deep pot, add the water, turmeric, and salt, and bring to a boil. Boil the peas gently, partially covered, until they are very soft, about 45 minutes, checking and stirring occasionally to ensure they do not stick to bottom of the pan.
    3. 3
      Turn off the heat and beat the split peas with a wire whisk or wooden spoon for a minute or until they look thick and creamy.
    4. 4
      You should have 5 cups of puree; if not, add additional water.
    5. 5
      Return the puree to the pot, add black pepper, and heat until boiling.
    6. 6
      Turn off the heat and fold in the chopped coriander; keep the dal covered.
    7. 7
      Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds.
    8. 8
      When the seeds turn several shades darker, add the garlic and optional red peppers. Cook until the garlic is browned and the oil is infused with its flavor.
    9. 9
      Pour the oil-garlic mixture onto the dal. Mix well.
    10. 10
      Taste for pepper and salt.
    11. 11
      Serve spooned into small bowls.

      Scaled this down all the way to 1 serving and it still worked with only the minimal amount of adjustment to cooking times. Might want to watch the salt, though; mine was a little too salty for my taste. The cumin-garlic seasoning adds a tremendous amount of flavour. I also left the lentils un-mashed - just a personal choice :) Thanks for this one! Quick and easy, will definitely make this again.
