Terra Klay is partnering this month with Uma Vaiyapuri and Vineeta Santoshi of Chutney Devis to share with you something new.
Chutney Devis is a company that sells nutritious, easy-to-make South Indian food kits. It was born out of a passion for cooking and this love of cooking came from Uma’s father who taught her to cook when she was a girl. Like Terra Klay, Chutney Devis cares about hand-made and time-honored traditions and we couldn’t wait to try their lentil soup kit.
We love partnering with other Chicago social entrepreneurs and with a beautiful cooking pot likes ours, Chutney Devis' lentil soup mix was a perfect collaboration to bring an easy one-pot meal to your table.
The mix comes in two varieties. Both come with directions and recipes to try. However, we wanted to add a variation to the recipe.
One Pot Lentil Soup Recipe
3 servings Preptime: 5 mins Cooktime: 20mins
Lentil soup packet by Chutney Devis
1 small onion diced
2 cloves garlic
1 tomato diced
¼ inch grated ginger
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon Cumin seeds optional
¼ inch jalapeno pepper or one green chili
Cilantro and spinach for garnish
Heat the Terra Klay cookware directly on the gas or electric cooktop (Remember that if you are cooking on the electric or ceramic stove, use the provided heat diffuser).
Wash the lentils and keep ready.
On high heat add the oil to the cooking pot and once hot add the cumin seeds. Once the seeds are popping add the onions and sauté for 3 minutes.
Add the green chili, ginger, and garlic and the spice packet found inside the lentil soup packet.
Sauté for a minute and add the tomatoes.
Now add the washed lentils and 3 cups of water and salt.
Bring to boil and reduce the heat, cover the pot, and let it cook for 15 minutes.
Turn off the heat, add the spinach and cilantro and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Serve with rice or even bread.

“The armed insurgency that broke out in 1989 has had a devastating effect on the normal life of people living in Kashmir. The number of orphans in Kashmir mushroomed dramatically . . . tens of thousands of people have been killed, and an estimated 10,000 disappeared during the past 25 years of the armed rebellion. . . .”
