Hot and Sour Soup
This soup has a distinct Asian flavour. Everyone who's tried it loved it. It serves about 3 people as a meal or more as a starter. You can use it as a starter to a Chinese or Thai meal. You can also add Chinese vegetables very successfully if you prefer.
300 ml water
2 chopped up, medium onions
2 minced cloves garlic
2 stalks of lemon grass, chopped along the stalk to make small roundlets
½ tsp chili powder or fresh chili to taste
1½ cups rinsed dried red lentils
½ tsp paprika
1 tin (about 280-300 ml) coconut milk
1 juice of lemon
