Default Red lentils

I have a big bag of red lentils that I bought to make lentil and bacon soup. I'm bored with that soup now so what else can I make with the lentils?

Thanks saria.

I found a recipe for lentil and chickpea soup that says use cumin seeds. I only have ground cumin. Will I get the same result using that instead of seeds?

Lentils are a staple in our house.

Dhal with rice.
Dhal with bread.
Roti.
Various soups - chickpeas, beans, vegetables, pumpkin, dumplings, etc. etc. etc.
Make lentil fritters or burgers.
Salad with bulgur or wild rice mixed with lentils.

Daal! I grew up eating red lentils everyday(with rice and other sides). It was a staple.

Bengali red lentils with spices

I had a go at making Daal. I'm not sure it turned out right. My lentils are split. Does that make a difference?

I'm thinking of adding the lentils to minced beef to bulk out bolognaise when I next make it. Good idea or not?

You could. There's lentil bolognese, too.
My thing is that I pretty much only use red lentils for soup or daal or croquettes because red lentils don't hold shape. Salads or something like bolognese I want green (du Puy), Pardina, or black (beluga) lentils because they have a good texture. If the lentils are split, even more reason to use for daal or soup, or some form of dip.

Here's another soup recipe:

http://leitesculinaria.com/77235/rec...ntil-soup.html

And another:
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...up-recipe.html

Here's a simplified version of daal. It has coconut milk which is nice with lentils:

Another version from Alford and Duguid:
