In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender.
Stir in garlic and berbere spice or chili powder. Cook for 1 minute.
Add water, lentils, tomato paste, and salt.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes (or 30 minutes for brown lentils). Stir occasionally.
Serve hot with Ethiopian-style injera or other bread.
If berebere spice is difficult to find, substitute your favorite red chili powder.
You may use brown lentils instead of red ones in this recipe.
