Using dry lentils, tinned tomatoes, a bit of onion and celery, you can make a delicious curry lentil stew. Makes a nice lunch or easy dinner for two.
Great recipe easy to cook I put all in my pressure cooker. I didn't have tinned tomatoes so used a cup of left over tomato passata and two large tomatoes. Only took 12 minutes cooking time with French (green) lentils. Great recipe to make 'out of the cupboard' - 21 Oct 2013
Okay, I have varied this recipe several times, and all of them came out super. First, I always omit celery and substitute bell pepper. I use veg or chicken stock instead of water, and use fresh tomatoes. My favorite variation is to add a little half and half at the very last minute(do not let it fully cook), just enough to make a thick, creamy soup. I have made this for friends and family, and is a hit every time. Thanks. - 03 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Made this today- with a lot of changes- and it's fantastic. I guess it's almost a different recipe, but I felt I should leave my changes here in case anyone wants to try what I did. I omitted the celery and added a chopped carrot and a chopped yukon gold potato. Then I added a half of a cup of vegetable broth, 1/3 cup brown rice, and quadrupled the curry powder (no one ever uses enough! a full tsp is perfect). It is excellent over homemade wheat bread! - 04 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
