Recipe by: Gad S. Sheaffer (g...@iil.intel.com) This recipe is common 
to the Ethiopian Jews (Phalashi). My understanding is that these are 
NOT unique to them. 
Sort the lentils and soak in tap water for 30 minutes. Rinse in 
running water and drain. 
Peel and finely chop the onions. peel and mash the garlic.Heat the oil 
in large pan and saute the onion until golden. Add tomato paste and 
paprika and mix. Add half the water and the garlic,ginger pepper and 
salt. Stir well and then add the rest of the water, stir again ,cover 
and bring to boil. 
When the water boil, add the lentils ,lower the flame and cook 20-30 
minutes, until the lentils soften. Serve hot. 
 
Yield: 8 servings
