Put 1 part lentils, 1/2 part rice in a pot. Clean well if you live in a country where bulk goods are kept in burlap sacks on the floor in dirty market places.
Add enough water that things will be soupy. Add a tsp or so of turmeric, mostly for color, and salt to taste. Cook until lentils and rice are soft.
Crush up several cloves of garlic(3-6, or more depending on quantity of soup - This is typically done in a mortar and pestle with a bit of salt). Pour an inch to 1.5" oil(olive or vegi) into a small frying pan, add garlic, heat and fry until garlic is golden. Pour oil and garlic into soup. If too garlicy, cook soup for longer.
