Either way you simmer lentils, not boil.

Besides, lentils turn out a lot better in a pressure cooker anyway.
Males you wonder how all the lentil cookers of the world survived before the advent of the pressure cooker.

I think lentils are similar to rice when it comes to cooking. You cook it covered to avoid drying out. Of course you can more water as you cook, but I do not like adding water. The food the loose the flavor.

You are what you eat.
