Is it Soup? is it Dal?

Creamy Broccoli Dal. I love curry and this recipe tastes like cream curry soup.

2 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup red lentils
Broccoli (the whole stalk including stem) peeled and finely chopped (2 cups)

2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup soy milk
1 tbsp shoyu
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala (I use cloves)
Salt to taste, if needed
Heat the oil on medium high in a pot. Add the cumin and mustard seeds, onion, and lentils. Fry in the oil until the seeds are popping the the lentils have changed colour. Careful not to burn them.

Add the broccoli, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring every once in a while. At this point, the soup should be thick but still watery, and the broccoli should be soft.

Add the soy milk, shoyu, lemon juice, turmeric, garam masala, and salt and turn down the heat; you don't want to boil the soup anymore or the soy milk might start to curdle. Stir well and serve immediately.
