Heat a pot and add onions and carrots and cook for a while. Add the spices and the garlic. Add 350 ml water and bring to a boil. Add the lentils. Once they are cooked, add salt to taste. Add parsley and basil.
Allow to cool and become solid. With a hand blender, mix and slowly add the lime juice. Add in some water if needed to make a smooth paste. This can be eaten directly as a mousse or as a bread spread.
