Finely dice or slice one inch of ginger thin and put in 7” pot. Add half a teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric, two serano chillies cut into thin rounds, and two tablespoons oil. Mix so the oil covers everything. These will rise to the top and “fry”.
One cup whole or cleaned orange mung lentils or as available. Two and a quarter cups waters. Salt to taste.
Cook for one hour in the oven in the winter position with the reflector. Longer- another hour- for whole lentils that have not been soaked.
Remove and add juice of half a lemon and half a bunch chopped cilantro.
