I love cooking... for my family, my friends and myself. Oh, what joy for the heart and food for the soul there is in sharing a delicious meal with good company! Here's a yummy Indian meal inspired by Mom Norden...
SPICY CHICKPEA SAMOSAS WITH RAITA
DAHL (LENTIL) SOUP

6 cups chicken or vegetable stock

1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne

In a big pot, bring lentils and stock to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. In a small pan on high heat, combine oil and spices for a few minutes. Add to lentils. Use hand blender and blend soup to desired texture and consistency.
