1 Cup Lentils
1/2 Tsp Turmeric
2 Tsp Salt
4 Cup Water
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
8 Cloves, minced Garlic
1 Tsp, whole Cumin
2/3 Cup, chopped Onions
4 Cup, chopped Zucchini
1 Tbsp Coriander Seed
2/3 Tbsp, ground Cumin
1/2 Tsp Paprika
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro


Place the lentils, turmeric, salt, and water in a large saucepan.

Bring it to boil, skimming off any surface scum that collects on the top.

Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the lentils are cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer to a serving bowl.

Cover the bowl and keep warm.

In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.

Add the garlic and sauté until golden brown.

Add the cumin seeds—they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil.

Quickly add the onion and zucchini and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

Add the ground coriander and cumin and continue to cook until the zucchini is cooked, about 10 minutes.

Remove the pan form the heat, add the paprika, and immediately pour over the hot lentils.

Swirl lightly to mix and sprinkle on the fresh coriander leaves.

Serve with your choice of Indian breads or rice.
