In a large pot, add the water, lentil mixture, egg, salt, and cornstarchy and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove lentils from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
In another large pot over medium-low heat, combine lentils and egg, stirring occasionally, until lentil and egg are well blended.
Cover, and simmer until lentile mixture is thickened, about 30 minutes.
(If lentils have been sitting on the stove for too long, add more water to the pot.)2.
Remove the lentil from heat.
Add chickpea rinses, water, and salt and stir to combine.
Add garlic and oreganol and stir for 2 minutes.
Add chili powder and cook for another 2 minutes, or until it starts to turn a little yellow and fragrant.
Add cinnamon, cayones, and cumin, and stir.
Add pepper and chili powder.
Stir and cook about 2 minutes more.
(The lentils should be soft enough to flip in the pot.
They will be firm enough to mash in a food processor.)3.
Transfer lentils to a bowl, and add the broth.
Add the vegetable broth, broth, and herbs.
Stir until the lentile liquid is absorbed and thickened enough to pour out of the pot, about 15 minutes.
Taste and add more salt if necessary.
(A little salt will help the lentiles absorb flavors better.)
