Add chopped onions and garlic and stir until they turn brown. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and any additional spices/herbs. Keep stirring for a few more minutes. Add this sauce and garam masala to the cooked lentils and mix well. Cover with a lid and leave for a couple of minutes. Add cilantro leaves and lemon/lime juice.

Coconut Dal Recipe
1/4 cup Grassfed Organic Ghee
1.5 cups of Five-Jewels Lentil Mix, soaked overnight
1 tablespoon brown mustard seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
2 teaspoons turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
1/2 cup dried, unsweetened coconut flakes
1 large onion, diced
2 large tomatoes, diced
1-inch knob of fresh ginger, minced
4 cups water
Salt to taste (added after lentils are cooked)*

Soak the lentil mix in twice as much water overnight, or up to 24 hours. Melt ghee over medium heat in a large pot. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, coriander, and dried coconut. Cook until seeds are sputtering and fragrant, stirring frequently. Add turmeric and cayenne and stir until well mixed. Add ginger and onions and cook until onions are translucent, 5-8 min. Mix in tomatoes, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until tomatoes are broken down. Add lentil mix and about 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmering and cook until legumes break down, about 45 minutes. Add salt to taste, and garnish with coconut, shaved carrots, or cilantro. Serve with a dollop of ghee.

*Do not add salt until after lentils have cooked. Salt interrupts the cooking process of beans.
