Lentils, spices and green chili make this soup simple, incredibly tasty and filling.
1 cup split lentils, sorted and rinsed
3 cups water
1/4 teaspoon crushed ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 teaspoon cilantro, finely chopped
1 small whole green chili, seeded and chopped
1 Bring the water to a boil in a pan (large enough to hold the water with enough room to add the lentils.)
2 Add the lentils to the water and all other ingredients except salt, cilantro, and green chili.
3 Let cook for 15 minutes. Add salt and the green chili and let boil for one minute.
4 Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
