Dhal - (Spiced Lentils)

1 1/4 cups red lentils
2 cups boiling water
1 bay leaf
2 T oil
1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 t turmeric
1 t coriander
1 t cumin
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 t cinnamon
1 green pepper (optional)

Wash and drain lentils and place in slow cooker. Add bay leaf and boiling water. Cover with lid and cook on high for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours on HIGH or until the lentils are tender and have absorbed all the water. If there is a little water remaining, remove the lid for 15 minutes or so and stir occasionally. The water will evaporate. About 20 minutes prior to serving, heat the oil in a fry pan and fry the onion and garlic until soft. Add the turmeric, coriander, cumin and ginger and continue to cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Then add the green pepper. Stir to coat the pepper with the spices and cook gently for 5 minutes. Stir the spice and vegetable mixture into the lentils and season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.
