Bring the water to a boil in a soup pot. Add the lentils and cook 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, onion, carrots, celery, tomatoes, turmeric, curry, salt and cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the soup is reduced almost by one-fourth, 1 hour.

You can find pureed garlic and pureed ginger in small jars at well-stocked supermarkets.
