Spicy Lentil Soup

2 cups of green lentils well washed
In winter add 2 sweet potatos, 
in summer add
2 chopped eggplants
4 large red onions chopped
8 big cloves of garlic diced
3 thumbs of ginger diced
4 over ripe limes
fish sauce to taste
light soya to taste
chilli powder to taste
black pepper to taste
fish curry powder to taste
1 can of coconut milk
1 large bunch of parsley washed
crème fraîche or sour cream

Brown onions in a large very hot saucepan while
lentils soak in luke warm water. When onions are
almost brown add garlic and ginger. Warm some
water, add curry and chilli powder to it, as much
as you can handle. When onions, garlic, and
ginger are good and brown, rinse off the lentils,
add them and the simmering water 
to the large saucepan.

Let this cook down for 20 minutes, then add soy,
fish sauce, and the juice of one or two limes.
Cook the whole thing down for at least 30 minutes
adding water as needed.

When you think it’s getting good give it a little
while. Then add your eggplant or sweet potato,
coconut milk, and cook it all through.
Once it’s all cooked and too spicy for at least one
guest, turn off the heat and let it sit. Cut up your
parsley and mix lime juice through it.
Serve in bowls, mix a good handful of lime-juiced
parsley into each bowl and spoon a dollop of
cream fraîche or sour cream on top.
