Lasoon Moong Ki Dal

Garlicky green lentils

1 cup moong dal (skinned split green lentils, they look yellow)
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp ghee or canola oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafetida
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 fresh chilies, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsp salt

Rinse lentils and drain a few times. Add 3 cups water and boil. Skim off any foam, add turmeric, and simmer 18-20 minutes.
Then make the fry: sizzle cumin seeds in ghee for 5-10 seconds. Add garlic, asafetida, and chilies, fry 1-2 minutes, set aside.
Add the fry to the dal, simmer 5 minutes, add salt and serve.
