Dal is simply the Hindi word for lentil and masoor dal refers to red lentils. Here, they are cooked with ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper, onion and cumin. Serve over basmati rice or so with naan (an Indian bread).
1Rinse the lentils and put them in a medium saucepan with all other ingredients. Cover with water and bring to boil. Skim off the foam that forms on top of the pan.
2Reduce heat to low and simmer until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally.
For a lighter version of this recipe, reduce the amount of oil. The result will be just as delicious!
