Spicy Red Lentil Dal

A classic, easy, and tasty.  I like to make this and then freeze, with brown rice, in lunch-sized containers.  I'm not sure my co-workers appreciate the smell but there are times I just don't care.

Oil – sesame or olive oil
1 diced onion
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
4 c water
1 c red lentils
1 t cumin…or a bit more
1 t coriander
1 t turmeric
1/4 t cardamom
Cayenne pepper to taste
Salt to taste

Saute onion, garlic, ginger in oil until onions are clear.  Add remaining ingredients and cook until lentils are nice and soft.
