    1       tb           Finely chopped ginger
      1/2   ts           Turmeric
    1       tb           Lemon juice
    1       c            Boiling water

   Wash lentils thoroughly.  Place in a saucepan with the
   turmeric & 5 cups of water.  Bring to a boil, stirring
   often.  Reduce heat & simmer, partially covered, for
   25 minutes.  Stir occasionally.  Add lemon juice to
   lentils & cook for a further 15 minutes.  Turn off
   heat & beat with a wire whisk.
   
   Heat ghee, when very hot, add cumin seeds & fry for
   about 10 seconds. Remove pan from the heat & add red
   pepper & minced garlic.  Stir rapidly for 10 seconds
   until the garlic begins to colour, but do not let it
   brown. Pour over the hot puree.  Serve immediately.
