  	I made this the other night, and my SO and I loved it, and it
  was SUPER easy!  It is yet another recipe from Extending the TAble...A
  World Community Cookbook by Joetta Handrich Schlabach pg156.  I made
  it with the split peas and served it over brown rice.  I think it is
  vegan too.
  Dhal (India)  Serves 4-6
  "Fry" in water or broth until golden brown:
  1 onion, diced
  1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  1 tsp ground turmeric
  1.5 tsp ground cumin
  1 tsp ginger root, finely grated
  1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  1 c. dried lentils or split peas (if using split peas soak overnight)
  3 c. hot water
  1 tsp salt
  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender,
  about 45 minutes.  Remove cover and simmer over very low heat, stirring
  frequently, about 20 more minutes, until lentils are mushy and thick, about
  the consistency of refried beans.  Garnish with onions, thinly sliced
  and browned, or a squeeze of lemon.  Serve with rice.
