This is what Subru uncle has been making for the last 13 years for all of us to drink when we are down with cold or cough or fever or a bad throat(in short, when we are down with flu, this is our "HOMEMADE TONIC THAT WORKS LIKE MAGIC"! This REALLY works to cure us without a trip to the doctor! I'd say that this is the vegetarian equivalent to a bowl of chicken soup that non-vegetarians enjoy when down with the flu. We love this over a bowl of steaming hot long-grain cooked Basmati rice. Those who find this curry very spicy, can add some yogurt to rice and then mix in this curry and eat. To be enjoyed best, you simply got to eat this with your fingers! I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! This is one curry that we take to all the potlucks we go to, and, this is LOVED by everyone! Note that you can use plain water instead of the boiled yellow lentils water. Using the boiled lentils water makes this wonderful dish more flavourful!
