    Title: Yellow Lentil Curry
    Categories: Indian
    Yield: 4 Servings

    200 g Yellow lentils
    100 ml Water
    1/2 Onion
    1/2 Tomato
    1 ts Garlic; mashed
    1 ts Ginger; mashed
    3 tb Salad oil
    Salt; to taste

    MMMMM------------------------WHOLE SPICES-----------------------------
    1/2 ts Mustard seed
    1/2 ts Cumin seed
    3 Red chili peppers

    MMMMM-----------------------GROUND SPICES----------------------------
    1 ts Turmeric powder
    1 tb Ground coriander seeds
    1 tb Ground cumin

    Chop the onion; cut the tomato into chunks of roughly the same size.

    Rinse the lentils, then cook in 100 ml of water. Bring to a boil over
    high heat, then add turmeric powder and lower the heat to medium and
    cook for 45 minutes or until the lentils take on a thick consistency
    then cut the heat. Add water as needed as the lentils are cooking.

    In a thick pot heat up the salad oil on medium heat, add the mustard
    seed and close the lid.

    When the mustard seeds start popping inside the pot, add the rest of
    the whole spices and stir fry, then add the onion, garlic, and
    ginger, turn up the heat slightly and stir fry until the onion starts
    to change color.

    Reduce the heat and add the rest of the ground spices and a little
    salt. Stir fry for about 20-30 seconds.

    Add the tomato and heat on medium heat. Cook until the water cooks
    out of the tomatoes and they achieve a paste-like consistency.

    Add the cooked lentils and heat on high until the mixture boils, then
    turn to low and cook for 1-2 minutes to combine. Add salt to taste,
    then serve.
