Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large casserole. Saute onion & garlic until the onion is tender. Add cumin & coriander. Saute for another minute over medium heat.

  3. Simmer only until the lentils are just tender. Adjust seasonings.
  4. Just before serving, bring back to a simmer & add the noodles. Cook until al dente, about 4 to 10 minutes. Serve at once in bowls.
  5. In place of vermicelli, use wholewheat spaghetti noodles or macaroni.
