Lentils are blended until smooth with curry-scented spices like cumin, garlic and cayenne pepper. Can be a spread for toast or bread and also served as a dip. An excellent way for non-meat eaters to get protein.
Altered ingredient amounts. YUM! We like things spicy so I used 1 tsp each of hot and mild curry. I also added 1 tbsp of coriander seeds AND, as also suggested, I did not use all the liquid or it definitely would have been too soupy. I put in my food processor and added the liquid a little at a time until I got a good, thick dip consistency. I think I only used half of the reserved liquid. It's a good recipe to play with and make your own but is it good? YES! - 08 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe was ok for me, although I altered it a little. I had had a leftover lentil salad that didn't go over real well with my boyfriend, so this was a great way to do something with the leftovers (plus it took less than 10 minutes to make). The mixture was a little thick for my blender, so I dribbled in some chicken stock to thin it out a little. I also added more cumin than the recipe called for because I love cumin so much, and I added a bit more garlic. My girlfriends loved it and so did I. I also got rid of the leftover lentil salad without having to throw it out and waste it! - 08 Oct 2008
Great, easy to make dip to change things up a little bit. For myself it's great, we'll see what the family thinks on christmas day! Thanks!!! - 21 Dec 2010
