Cooking Notes
Cooking time for lentils will depend on size of red lentils and other variants. Lentils should not be a paste or mushy. There will be some mushy bits, but most of the lentils should remain whole and soft
If you are not confident of this step then put a tiny bit of oil in a small saucepan and fry seeds separately on high heat, with lid on (glass lid is ideal)
