  1. In a large pot rinse and drain the lentils several times, until the water runs clear.
  2. Cover with water and bring to a boil, cook until lentils fall apart. You will have to skim off the foam several times, I find using a ladle works the best.
  3. Heat a saute pan and add oil.
  4. Add onion, garlic and ginger, saute on low heat for at least 10 minutes.
  5. On medium/high heat, in a small frying pan add the cumin seeds and coriander seeds, toast until they change to a darker colour or you can smell them. Grind in a coffee grinder if you have one, I don't so I use a mortar and pestle. Add to the onion along with the rest of the spices, cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add the onion and spice mixture to the skimmed off pot of lentils.
  7. Season with vinegar,syrup,salt and pepper. Finish with coconut milk.
