This dal soup recipe is essentially a vegetarian lentil soup that's flavored with Indian spices. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and is full of flavor!
In a large soup pot, combine rinsed lentils, apple, water, and salt, to taste over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, decrease heat to medium and let cook about 25 minutes or until lentils are soft. Add more water, as needed.
Heat oil in a separate pan over medium high heat. Add Dal Spice Mix and turmeric and sauté until spices begin to froth. Stir spice infusion into the lentils; stir and taste, add more salt as needed.
Serve warm with cilantro, and rice and roti, if desired.
