Tomato Dal Soup

Dal by ng @ Whats for Dinner?Its soup weather here. Dal or yellow spelt lentils take a while to soften, but are so creamy. One of my favorite soups.

Fry 1 chopped onion in 1 tsp oil and 1/4 tsp turmeric.
1/3 cup Dal
1 can of Tomatoes
1 cup water
Bring to a boil, cover and lower the heat. If you soaked the dal before cooking then the soup should be done in 30min, I did not soak my Dal, so it toke 2 hours and some mashing for mine to soften. Check for salt, pepper and sugar. Its great just like that, but it can be spiced up!
For Spice fry in 1 tsp oil for 2 min:
1 tsp mustered seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 Tbs dry coconut
chili powder to taste.
Mix in with the soup.
