Serves: 2 persons
Total preparation time: 40 minutes
1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
3 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fish sauce
Heat the cooking oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onions and fry for about 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and set a side.
Was the lentils well, drain in a sieve then turn into the pan. Stir to coat in the oil then pour in 50ml water and the ground turmeric. Bring to a simmer and cook until the lentils are fragrant (about 5 minutes). Stir well to combine then add 1l water along with the salt and fish sauce.
Bring to a boi and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the lentils are tender (time will depend on the type of lentils used).
Take off the heat, turn into a soup bowl, garnish with the fried onions and serve immediately.
