Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Add a little extra water if necessary. Add the lemon juice and rind, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining ghee in a separate pan and sauté the garlic until fragrant. Add the chillies and spices, and stir-fry far about 1 minute longer. Pour the remaining ghee over the lentils so it floats on top and serve immediately as is. Serves 6.
