    1. 1
      Rise and pick through lentils thoroughly and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add onion, garlic, chili, and bell pepper. Cook until the onion is clear and slightly brown.
    3. 3
      Add lentils and cook for a minute until slightly brown, being careful not to burn. Add tomato, cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt, and black pepper. Quickly add water and maintain medium heat.
    4. 4
      Cover saucepan and let boil. Lentils should absorb water and become soft in about 1 hour. Add more water if needed. Lentils are cooked through when they are completely soft.
    5. 5
      Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with bread or a dollop of unsweetened yogurt.

      I made a double batch for dinner tonight. It was good but not WOWEE. After 45 minutes it was very well done, so I added another 2c water to bring it back to soup consistency. The yogurt gave it a nice, creamy richness. Thank you! Made for A Culinary Tour of Yemen in the NA/ME Forum 2/14.
