      I''m a lentil hound and this filled the bill. The only change I made was to grate the ginger, rather than sticking one piece of it in there.

      This is quick, easy, and very yummy. I have made it once, and am cooking it for a second time as I type this. Both times I chopped up the ginger. The first time I subbed chili powder and added it with the turmeric. The second time I used the whole peppers, but subbed panch phoron instead of cumin seeds. As soon as it finishes cooking, I'll update this review! UPDATE: I subbed panch phoron, and ghee instead of the oil, and it was delicious! Stirred in some chopped fresh cilantro at the end. This is going to be a great breakfast tomorrow with some whole wheat toast!
