Indian Lentil Soup (Dal Shorva)

- 1 1/2 cups Lentils
- 1 tsp Turmeric
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne
- 1 tsp Cumin
- 6 cups Vegetable Stock (I used water w/ "Rapunzel" bouillon cubes)
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
- 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp Ginger Paste

1. Rinse lentils a couple times.
2. Bring the lentils, vegetable stock, turmeric, cayenne, & cumin to a boil in a pan.
3. Once boiling, bring down to simmer for about 25 minutes, or until lentils are soft.
4. Pour soup into a blender & blend to desired creaminess. If you like a chunkier soup, just pulse it. 
5. Saute garlic, ginger, & mustard seeds in the 2 tbsp of oil. About 5 minutes on medium heat. Then add to soup.
6. Soup should still be warm/hot if you took it from simmering pot to the blender, if not just put soup back into the pot and simmer for 5 minutes to re-heat.
**I found that I did not need to add any salt & pepper, but if you feel your soup needs it add some to taste.**
Serves about 4 people

I tried the soup today and it was so delicious. The most important thing that it was not just delicious it is actually very healthy soup for kids and for older as well. My grandfather liked it too much, thanks for sharing the edusson review amazing recipe of yummy soup.
