Curried Red Lentil Soup

I'd completely forgotten that this blog existed! Anyway...

Some ghee
1 large onion finely diced
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
10cm ginger, grated
1 chilli of your choice (I used scotch bonnet) finely chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 bay leaves
Half a pint glass full of rinsed red lentils
1 litre stock (I used chicken)
Squeeze of lemon juice
Salt & pepper
Some chopped coriander

Melt some ghee in a saucepan and cook for a few mins. Add garlic, ginger, chilli, curry powder, cinnamon, cumin, bay leaves and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Add lentils & stock, bring to boil and simmer gently for about 40 mins. Discard bay leaves, add a dash of lemon juice, season and serve with a sprinkling of chopped coriander. Eat :)
