Onions, Finely Chopped 2 Numbers
Ghee Or Oil 1/2 Cup
Ground Chili 1 Numbers

Wash the Lentils well and drain. Heat the Ghee or Oil in a large saucpan and fry the Onions. When they soften add the Chili, Pepper, Cumin, Coriander, and Turmeric. Stir in well and cook for 30 seconds or so. Add the Lentils. Stir well to ensure that each grain is coated and add the Lemon Juice. Cut the Cauliflower into small florets and add to the pan. Add the Chicken Stock and the Coconut. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Mix the flour with some of the liquid to form a smooth paste and stir into the saucepan. Add the Salt and Cashews. Cook a further 5-10 minutes until the Lentils have formed a thick sauce. This dish is a complete meal in itself when served with plain boiled rice.

This is absolutely delicious. I am a quest to learn how to cook Indian food (since I love it in restaurants) and this was one of the first two I've tried. It was easy and tasted wonderful. I think the lemon juice and the cashews are the perfect touch.
