I never thought I would have a red lentil soup that could match the Turkish red lentil soup that I have been served in Turkish restaurants and that I've learned to make. So I had low expectations for this Indian spiced version. It completely destroyed my expectations and was absolutely delicious. It was great last night, and I had two more bowls today (for lunch and dinner) which were equally good if not better. This soup is sweet, spicy, healthy, warm, unusual...all in all amazing. Give it a try and I guarantee you won't be sorry! (Adapted from the Best of Fine Cooking magazine)
