- In a large stockpot, combine lentils, 4 cups of stock, red pepper flakes, and turmeric.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer.
- Stir occasionally and cook until lentils are just tender, about 25 minutes.
- Add more liquid, if necessary, to prevent sticking.
- While lentils are cooking, heat a large nonstick saute pan to medium high. Saute onions, garlic, ginger, cumin, and curry until onions start soften, about 5 minutes.
- If the mixture is sticking and browning too quickly, pour in a small amount of stock and scrape the bottom of pan to release any bits of food that are sticking.
- Stir in cooked lentils and more stock, to desired consistency.
- Simmer for 10 minutes. Add lemon juice.
Dal is delicious served over brown basmati rice, regular brown rice, or with whole-wheat pita bread and raita, an Indian side dish of yogurt, cucumber, and seasonings.
