Lentil Soup

1 cup lentils or any dal, preferably with skin
1 tbs. ghee
3 cups water
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp. fresh cumin powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper powder
salt to taste
lemon juice to taste

Wash lentils and boil with water in pressure cooker for 4 minutes after full pressure is reached. Open the cooker as soon as possible and add the tomatoes, carrot, and 3/4 of the onion. Replace lid to retain flavors and allow to cool; then blend all ingredients together. In a separate pan, heat ghee and sauté remaining onion. When onion is soft, add cumin, pepper, and salt. Pour into the lentil mixture. If it is too thick, add a little water. Serve hot with a few drops of lemon juice.
