1 SugarRoti Lentil Nu Spice Package
3 tablespoons olive oil or ghee (clarified butter)
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (approx. 2 cups)
1 14.5 oz crushed tomato
3/4 cup dry lentils (we like to use mung beans, black eyed peas, split peas (toor dal), yellow pigeon peas, red beans or black beluga beans)
1 13.5 oz coconut milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup of water (less if you want a thicker soup)
1 medium serrano chili, finely chopped (remove seeds for a milder spice)
sour cream or yogurt, to taste
¼ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
Soak dry lentils for 1 hour in 3 cups of water and drain before cooking.
