Thumbs down Help me fix my Indian lentil dahl

Help! I put too much lemon juice in and it's overpowered all the other spices. What can I do to fix it? Happy to hear tips for next time, but I'll be sad if I have to either eat the lemon dahl or throw it away!

Ingredients:

cilantro, cinnamon, cumin, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, lentils, onion, turmeric

Make another batch with no lemon then combine the two.

If you try to mask the flavor of the lemon with other ingredients, you will change the flavor of the dish

If you get to the point of wanting to throw it away, first try a pinch or two of baking soda to reduce the acid flavor of the lemon juice and see if that helps.

I've never seen a dahl recipe with cinnamon. Interesting...
