Microwave lentils recipe
1.5 c washed lentils (tripled washed)
2 c water
2 garlic cloves
dash of red chili powder
dash of turmeric powder
Red onion to taste
Wash lentils. I used filtered water due to the water source here being suspect.
Cover with water.
Add diced potato
Stir and microwave for 10 minutes
While microwaving, blend remaining items.
Pour blended mixture into bowl of lentils. Stir well. Use a little extra water to get the rest of the mixture out and add to lentils
Microwave for 5 minutes. Stir and check lentils. If soft, then enjoy! Otherwise, microwave 2 more minutes or to your liking. You can also add additional water to make this more as a "soup" and microwave for approximately 30 minutes total. Lentils will then "mush" into a soup upon stirring.
Here it is served. My kids asked for ketchup with it so I said "why not" and added it. It brought down the temperature as well so they could eat it right away, which they did, on the microwave rice I made before this!
