This is a rich and nutritious vegetarian lentil curry with tomatoes. Its a perfect meal with some rice, raita and pickles or as a part of an Indian feast. You choose!
Something else. This is a wonderful recipe... My spin on it is to add a tablespoon of butter to the simmer in the last step, only use fresh chopped tomatoes, and double the garlic.. I added this mixture to the red lentils and also 10 jumbo prawns. Delicious! - 08 Oct 2008
I can't believe I never reviewed this recipe. I've been making it once a week for a long time now - it's excellent. I serve it with jasmine rice and hot naan. Oh, and don't be alarmed if the lentils look rather mushy before you add them to the spices and tomatoes. You haven't done anything wrong, and they'll still taste just as good. - 08 Oct 2008
This was my first ever lentil dish! It worked out well, altho' I added mushrooms for variety. Forget rice - serve with chapatis dry heated in a frying pan for 30 secs on each side, and perhaps with some cucumber and yoghurt raita. - 08 Oct 2008
