Scale
  • 1 cup (dry) red lentils

Instructions

  1. Rinse your lentils until the water runs clear.
  2. Add your lentils to a pot with water, 1/2 of the onion, and the turmeric. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat, cover, and let simmer for 45 minutes. If your lentils are too thick, add a bit more water.
