[India] Lentil Soup with Coconut


cannot forget my first experience with real indian style foods. I used to be familiar with very koreanized curry and that was all I had for indian food.
As a big fan of all kinds of foods made of beans, this is A wonderful soup in my life!! of course, healthy and not greasy!! :)

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
4 cups water
1 pound dried small red lentils, washed and picked over
1 (13.5-ounce) can light coconut milk
1 bay leaf
