Warm Red-Lentil Dal With Pita Chip Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 pound red lentils (about 1 1/4 cups), picked over and rinsed
    One 14 1/2-ounce can low-sodium chicken broth, or homemade, skimmed of fat
    1 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    1 1/4 teaspoons cumin seeds
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
    1 large tomato, seeded and finely diced
    1/4 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine lentils, broth, water, and turmeric. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan; add garlic, cumin seeds, and crushed red pepper. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the lentils from heat, and stir in the garlic mixture, diced tomato, mint, and salt. Serve warm.
