I believe that Cooking is not a Science, its an Art . It requires you to be creative. A little change here, a little deviation there from the recipe only adds more flavor! So don’t think you are married to the quantities or the ingredients, be bold and trust yourself! 

Method to Prepare below


  • Masur Dal or French Lentils
  • Bay leaves
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Onions
  • Celery
  • Tomatoes

Saute onions, celery and tomatoes in olive oil or ghee. Add salt and cook till really soft. Cook lentils in water with a bay leaf and a cinnamon stick till they are soft. (If you soak the lentils for a couple of hours, cooking will be much easier) Mix the two and add hot water for the desired consistency.
