  Serves 4 to 6
  
  LENTILS:
  
  Run the lentils through your hands to make sure there are no stones or
  other foreign bodies in them.  Rinse them in two changes of water and
  put into a pan.  Add onion, salt to taste, and enough water to come
  about 2 inches above the surface of the lentils.  Set over medium
  heat and bring to a fast simmer.  Continue simmering until the
  lentils are quite soft - about 3 hours, depending on their age. Keep
  a pan of near-boiling water on the side, ready to add if necessary.
  
  Put the pork pieces into a pan; add salt to taste and water to cover.
  Bring to a fast simmer and continue simmering until the pork is
  tender but not soft - about 25 minutes. Strain, reserving the broth,
  and set broth and meat aside.
  
  Cover the dried chilies with boiling water and leave to soak for
  about 15 minutes, until the chilies have softened and become fleshy.
  Drain and put into a blender with 1 cup of the reserved pork broth,
  the broiled tomatoes, garlic, oregano, clove, and cinnamon; blend
  until smooth, adding more broth only if needed to release the blades
  of the blender.
  
  Heat the lard in a small frying pan, add the blended ingredients, and
  fry over medium heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan,
  until reduced and well seasoned - about 4 minutes. Add to the lentils
  and add the pork, remaining broth, plantain, and pineapple; simmer
  together for about 30 minutes. Adjust salt and add water if
  necessary. The mixture should be like a thick soup.
