Place the onions, garlic, tomatoes, turmeric, ground cumin, cardamon pods, cinnamon, lentils and water in a pan , boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
Take out the cinnamon stick and pods of cardamom.
Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor.
Press the soup through a sieve(I use a Metal one) back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Add coconut milk, lime juice and reheat the soup gently.
Serve and garnish with cumin seeds.

I hope you enjoy this soup. It reminds me of soups I have had in India and Bhutan with that gentle mix of spices.
