  • 1
    Cut up onion, garlic, and as much hot pepper as you would like.
  • 2
    Place all of them in a pot and pour in enough vegetable oil (1/2 cup) so the ingredients swim in it.
  • 3
    Let this simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • 4
    wash lentils and add into mixture.
  • 5
    Add remaining spices and add enough water so that the lentils are covered. You will need to add water as it cooks down until it reaches a consistency you like. The less water, the more firm the lentils - the more water, the more soupy.
  • 6
    Stir very often so lentils do not burn, approximately every 5-10 minutes.
