Dal Soup

Recipe by Bill D.

This has to be the easiest and yet one of the most flavorful soups I have ever made. I am keeping a constant supply on hand, making it once a week or so.  I'm pretty loose with recipes so this is what I do. Experiment and see what you like.

1 cup yellow dal (split peas)
1/2 t ground turmeric
1/2 t ground coriander (roast the spice in a dry skillet and grind in a coffee grinder- this is a critical step)
8 cups water
1/2 large can of chopped tomatoes
1 T mustard seeds (black) toast them too till grey and popping but do not grind them.
1/2 cup cilantro
salt and pepper to taste.

Water and peas and turmeric, cook around 1 hour till soft.  Add tomatoes, mustard seeds, ground coriander, cilantro.

Put in a blender. Salt and pepper to taste.

I like it with some coarse food puree but you can make it as smooth as you like.

Eat! It's great!
