Soak lentils overnight or for 30 minutes, whichever is more convenient.
Cook black mustard seeds in oil until they are popped (you might want to cover it with a lid until they're done, and point a fan out the window to take care of the mustard gas). Throw in onions, garlic, and ginger and cook until you smell them.
Take pan off of burner, put on lentils with enough fresh water to cover them with one knuckle's depth of water. You can use the soaking water to water your plants, they like it more than regular water! (I suppose you could do this all at once, but I only have one burner right now).
When lentils breakdown into red mush, add everything you haven't put in there yet.
Cook for 15 more minutes, serve over rice or Fried Tofu Bombs (on this site).

!!! I added too much tumeric and now it's all weird tasting. :( it looked good at least.

Too much turmeric makes things bitter.

Gingery! And well-spiced in general. It seems like a lot of dal recipes really lack that, which makes this nice.


I haven't tried this yet but I do love the name.
