Spicy Red Lentil Dal

This is one of my favorite recipes. Super yummy and pretty easy. This recipe is adapted from Cooking Light 2003.

2 cups broth
1 cup dried small red lentils
1 tablespoon oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
juice from 1/2 a lime 

Combine broth and lentils in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover, and simmer 10 minutes or until lentils are tender. Remove from heat; cover and set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, mustard seeds, and red pepper, and cook 5 minutes or until onions are tender and seeds begin to pop, stirring constantly. Add cumin, turmeric, coriander, and black pepper; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add tomato paste, and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add lentils, coconut milk, and salt; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in lime juice.  

I served this with roasted broccoli…….
