  • Bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 1/2 hour until lentils are very mushy and have lost their shape. Add water if necessary to keep it a thick soup consistancy.
  • After 15-20 minutes, add the greens.
  • Heat the oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds.
  • When they pop, add cumin seeds.
  • When the cumin is brown, add remaining onion and curry leaves. Cook until onion is golden brown.
  • Add onion mix to the lentils and cook for 5 minutes to meld the flavors.
