    1       T            Black mustard seeds
    2       Tb           Chopped fresh coriander
 
   Wash lentils thoroughly. Place in a pot with 3 cups water and turmeric.
 Cook, partially covered, until very tender, about 30   minutes.
   Combine lentils and 1 cup water in a deep pot. Whisk to crush some of the
 lentils. Add the tomatoes, cumin, ground coriander, cayenne, onion, garlic
 and salt and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook, partially covered, 10
 minutes. Add lemon juice.
   Heat oil in a small skillet until hot. Add mustard seeds and cover so the
 seeds do not fly out of the pan. When they stop spattering, mix into soup.
 Stir in fresh coriander.
   Makes 6-8 servings.
