200g red lentils, rinsed
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium red onion, diced
4 cloves garlic and 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tblsp berbere (readymade or see below)
1/2 - 1 tsp salt

Warm oil in large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, 5 min. Add garlic and ginger, cook 2 minutes. Stir in berbere.

Add cooked lentils, ½ teaspoon of salt, and water. Bring to a simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, until most water evaporates and mixture thickens to a stew-like consistency. Taste for salt. Finish with lime and coriander
