Add the lentils, salt, and 3 cups of water to a slow cooker. Cook on high for 4-6 hours.


When your lentils are close to done, heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add all of your cumin seeds and mustard seeds and let cook for 10-15 seconds.


 Then add your coriander, turmeric, cayenne, onion, tomato, and garlic, stir for 30 seconds, and turn the heat down to medium low. Let it cook until the onions become translucent and the tomatoes break down.

Add the onion/tomato/spice mixture to the slow cooker and stir to combine. Top with cilantro and serve!


The best thing about this is – you can cook the lentils in the slow cooker, and just add in the spice mixture at the end, so your “active” time ends up being only 15 minutes!
