1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon 
2 Cups of Water
  • Sort and clean lentils. 
  • Pour 4 cups of water and 2 cups of lentils, bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer.  Cook for 20 minutes. 
  • In a skillet or pot heat the oil and cook the Onions, Carrots, Cilantro, and Garlic until tender... approximately 10 minutes. 
  • Add the Ginger, Bouillon, Graham Masala, Paprika, Chile Powder, Ground Pepper, and Cinnamon. Cook the spices with the vegetables for about 2 minutes.
