South Indian Spinach and Lentil Soup

I am so psyched to make this south indian spinach and lentil soup courtesy of Big Apple Bites. It is the perfect detox meal.

Big Apple Bites

This recipe comes out of Padma Lakshmi’s cook book Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet. I also made this back in February, but my trip and my daily life has gotten in the way of me publishing it on here.  This soup has very simple ingredients that yield a very good flavor.  I had most of them on hand in my kitchen.  The recipe calls for black mustard seeds but I couldn’t find them at the store so I just used regular mustard seeds. I also didn’t have the red chilis so I used red pepper flakes instead.
