A question about a recipe: Curried Beef and Red Lentil Stew

I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Curried Beef and Red Lentil Stew" from Sonali aka the Foodie Physician. It says:

"Soak the lentils in water overnight. Rinse and set aside. "

Assuming the red lentils are the split masoor dal type lentils, I don't think there's any need to soak them. I typically just rinse and cook them.
