This soup is delicious. Used half the amount of cinnamon per other reviews and it was plenty. Did not have a jalapeno so I used 1 1/2 tsp. canned diced jalapeno. Just the right kick for me - a little too much for my six and four year old who both really enjoyed this soup. One ate it over steamed rice and the other dipped tortilla chips in it. Will make again and again!
Curried Red Lentil Soup
This soup is inspired by the Indian side dish dal; the Hindi word means “split” and refers to the split peas or lentils used in its preparation. Fragrant ginger, curry, cinnamon and cumin add lots of rich flavor.

This recipe was delicious. The lemon and coriander really complete the dish. I didn't have yoghurt on hand but imagine that would be even better - if that's possible. This one goes into the 'love' file.
I followed the recipe to the end but didn't add cinnamon & nutmeg. I also topped it off with grilled shrimp. This recipe was a total hit with the family. The addition of yogurt was so tasty.
I make this all the time. I leave out the chutney, it's just not for me. And I use 4-5 jalapenos because they're one of my favorite foods and one just wasn't enough!
The yogurt makes a brilliant garnish--a much, much healthier alternative to sour cream!
Also, I like to make this soup then leave the pot in the fridge for a day or two before eating (if I can resist) because the flavors meld together and it just tastes better and better.
