DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the beans or lentils.
  • Bring to a boil with the stock, turmeric, Cayenne, cumin, cardamom and curry/bay leaves.
  • Let simmer until the beans or lentils are very soft (ca 30 minutes).
  • If using bay leaves, remove them now. Curry leaves can be left in the soup.
  • Run the soup quickly in a blender to a not too smooth consistency (or mash the lentils/beans with a ladle).
  • Sautee the garlic and mustard seeds lightly in the fat and add to the soup.
  • Let simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Add salt, pepper and squeezed lemon to taste.
  • Serve hot with pita or paratha bread.
