DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large casserole. Saute onion & garlic until the onion is tender. Add cumin & coriander. Saute for another minute over medium heat.
  • Add cayenne pepper, lentils, bay leaf & water. Bring to a boil. Add salt & pepper to taste, cover, reduce heat & simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Simmer only until the lentils are just tender. Adjust seasonings.
  • Just before serving, bring back to a simmer & add the noodles. Cook until al dente, about 4 to 10 minutes. Serve at once in bowls.
  • In place of vermicelli, use wholewheat spaghetti noodles or macaroni.
