DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the four types of lentils.
  • Fill bowl with the mixed lentils and enough water to cover them. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the cumin seeds.
  • When the cumin seeds crackle, add the asofoetida.
  • Add the onion and garlic, and saute for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the jalapeno and ginger, and saute for another minute or so.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the sauteed mixture to a 4-6 qt crockpot.
  • Add the soaked mixed lentils and four cups of water to the crockpot and stir.
  • Add the turmeric, cayenne, ground coriander, ground cumin, and salt to the crockpot and stir again.
  • Cook in the crockpot, covered, on low heat for 5 - 7 hours, checking occasionally (mine was done in just under six hours).
  • In the last 15 minutes of cooking, add the tomato sauce and mix well. Add additional seasonings to taste if desired.
  • Just before serving, stir in the lemon juice and cilantro. Enjoy!
