Ingredients

Method

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook mustard seeds, coriander seeds and cumin seeds until they start to pop, about 1minute. Add onion, garlic, ginger, jalapeño pepper and salt; cook, stirring often, until very soft and translucent, about 15 minutes, adding 1 to 2 tbsp water at a time if browning too quickly. Stir in turmeric; cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, lentils and water; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until lentils are soft, 10 to 12 minutes.

Test Kitchen Tip: Use the bottom of a saucepan or skillet to crush seeds on a cutting board.
