    1       c            Lentils
    6       c            Water
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Turmeric
    1       ea           Onion, small and chopped
    1       tb           Butter/oleo
      1/2   ea           Green chili, chopped
 
   Soak lentils for one hour.  Drain and wash lentils in
   cold water.
   
   Place lentils in a 2-qt saucepan.  Add water, green
   chili, salt and turmeric.  Bring to a boil.  Lower
   heat and simmer 1 1/2 hrs.
   
   Melt butter/oleo in a small frying pan.  Saute the
   onion.  Add the onion and the butter/oleo to the
   lentils and boil the whole thing for 2 or 3 mins.
   
   Serve with fresh lemon juice.  Rice is also a good
   addition.
   
   VARIATIONS:  Instead of onion you can try 1/2 ts of
   whole cumin seed.  You can also add 1/2 cup of mixed
   veggies, or 1/2 cup of chopped potatoes and
   cauliflower, or 1/2 cup of green peas.
