Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups dried red lentils, rinsed
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 1 -inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • Large pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • Juice of 1 lemon
Directions

Combine the lentils, 6 cups water, the tomato, ginger, turmeric, cayenne and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, vigorously whisking occasionally, until the lentils are broken up and the mixture is thick, about 45 minutes.

Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute; stir into the lentils along with the cilantro and lemon juice. Season with salt.
