   Julie Sahni (William Morrow).
   
   Wash lentils thoroughly. Place in a pot with 3 cups
   water and turmeric. Cook, partially covered, until
   very tender, about 30 minutes.
   
   Combine lentils and 1 cup water in a deep pot. Whisk
   to crush some of the lentils. Add the tomatoes, cumin,
   ground coriander, cayenne, onion, garlic and salt and
   bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook, partially
   covered, 10 minutes. Add lemon juice.
   
   Heat oil in a small skillet until hot. Add mustard
   seeds and cover so the seeds do not fly out of the
   pan. When they stop spattering, mix into soup. Stir in
   fresh coriander.
   
   Makes 6-8 servings.
