It’s been almost a year since we moved from Cologne to Berlin. We spent the first two weeks sleeping on our new red Ikea-couch before we moved our bed and the rest of our stuff over. On moving day I flew back and forth to Cologne to arrange everything: wait for the moving company, give the apartment a final cleaning, hand back the keys and stop by the neighbours for a final chat. A busy day, so no time to cook. Luckily I had the sweetest neighbours ever and Golli invited me over for lunch. She had made these lentils. I wrested the recipe from her and this dish has become a regular appearance on our table ever since. To my shame it’s taken me 10 months to write it out for Singlemade. And I’m sorry, because it’s totally single-proof.
The most important ingredient here is without any doubt the cumin powder. It gives the lentils an amazingly unique flavour. This is Golli’s recipe but personally I don’t use potatoes. I serve a fresh mixed salad on the side with tomatoes and cucumber. Delicious! Another tip from Golli: serve it with yogurt!
