Black Lentil Soup Kali Dal-Slow Cooker

Black Lentil Soup Kali Dal-Slow Cooker

Ok, so it’s not Lentil Soup. It’s Dal. But you can eat it like soup. I won’t tell anyone. This is a super simple recipe that doesn’t really require any Indian spices. Simple throw everything into the slow-cooker and you’re done (about 9 hours later). But the best part is that you can do anything you want with those 9 hours. Like read a book, take a nap, macrame (or if you have small children, you’ll just have to fantasize about those things). Traditionally, dal serves as the protein component of a traditional Indian meal which also consists of veggies, rice, roti, and yogurt. (And yes-fish, chicken, lamb can also be found on many an indian plate-just not this one). I hope you give this recipe a whirl and enjoy it as much as I did!.

Ingredients
1 cup black lentils
4 cloves garlic, diced
1 inch ginger, diced
1 Thai green chili, diced (optional)
1tsp salt (to taste)
1/4tsp turmeric (optional)
1/4 large onion, diced
1 medium tomato, diced (optional)
4-5 cups water
