    Red lentils are quick to cook. Green - either take ages or overnight soak and still quite a bit of cooking. Didn't try brown.

      It takes me an hour to turn red lentils to thick lentil soup.

      I never tried green, but brown are ready to eat after about 30 minutes of simmering.

      Green lentils take 30-60 minutes. About the same as beans, but with no soaking required.

      You should go with red anyway.
      They're all the same cultivar anyway, red is shelled, green/brown are not. Since the shell is pretty much nutritional waste, and you're getting plenty of fibre from the lentils anyway, just get the shelled ones.

      they're a good source of poor quality protein

      Yes, and while you need your high quality protein, if you're maximising your protein intake you also need just massive amounts of it.

    This post inspired me to try them and I must say they are incredible.
    I just made a Dal with roughly 8000 calories for $8AUD.
    It only took me 30 minutes, I mixed lentils, greek yoghurt, olive oil, tomato paste and a bunch of spices in a single pot. It was incredibly easy to do and it tastes wonderful.
    I'll definitely be incorporating more lentils into my diet this way as a cheap protein source alongside eggs, dairy and meat.

      Does it though? All Indian food I've tasted was trash and lentils were not exception. I need a pajeeta gf to cook it for me.

        If you're too moronic to boil dried lentils and mix in spices, oil and greek yoghurt then I don't respect your opinion on whether or not an entire culture's cuisine is good or bad.

          That just don't look good I'msorry but if it tasted good then I'll believe you.

          What did it taste like?

            The lentils themselves have a mild flavour similar to other legumes like beans.
            This was my first time ever making it and I didn't have all the spices for the recipe I was going through. I used garlic and onion powder as opposed to fresh onion and garlic and a bunch of different spices like paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper, cumin, chicken stock cubes, salt.
            The taste is basically just a mixture of those spices, alongside a tangy taste from the greek yoghurt I mixed in.
            The strongest smell and taste is from the cumin.

            This looks like the slop they eat in the matrix when they get out

            If I knew what I was doing and had access to proper ingredients I could make it look better. The point of Dal isn't to look amazing, it's to provide an incredibly cheap source of protein for 2 billion people living in poverty.

      Do Indians really do that? Where did you get your recipe?

        There's many ways to cook it, some use coconut cream, some use Greek yoghurt.
        I have an Indian mate whose mum would always cook for me when I went over to his house and she used Greek yoghurt in her cooking because it was the only option in Australia for a yoghurt that wasn't packed with sugar and fruit. Plain yoghurt is common in Indian cooking, "Greek yoghurt" is simply what plain thick yoghurt in Australia is known as.
        https://biancazapatka.com/en/red-lentil-dahl/
        This was the recipe I based it on, I skipped frying the onions and used zero fresh herbs because I wanted to see how it tastes if you use the cheapest possible ingredients. My Indian mate said that Greek yoghurt is an acceptable substitute for coconut cream if you don't have it.

        Use fresh herbs if you want it to be slightly more expensive but taste and present better.

          So did you just throw all that slop

          This post inspired me to try them and I must say they are incredible.

          in boiling water and let it cook?

            Lentils into boiling water, let them absorb the water until they are soft, strain out any excess water, put the lentils back in the pot, mix in spices, yoghurt, oil, leave the heat on for a while to mix it all in. All I needed was a pot, a wooden spoon and a strainer. That was how I made my slop. You need to be extremely moronic to frick this up.

            The same technique would apply if you wanted to do it properly except that you would fry onions/other spices in a separate pan and add them to the pot of lentils at the end, then garnish with yoghurt + coriander or other garnishes.

                Red lentils cook the fastest and turn mushy. Green and Black lentils take longer to cook and hold their texture more. Do your own research to find out which one you want to use, I went with red split lentils.

                The whole cooking process took me less than 30 minutes and I got around 8000 calories from it when you add up 1kg of red split lentils, 500g of Greek yoghurt and a bit of olive oil.
