    Tasted very good and different although we eat similar food mostly. One needs to soak the lentils in water half an hour before cooking ( right at the beginning of cooking). I also add all the sour ingredints like chutney, vinegar, tomato, etc. at the last after the lentils have softened. Used crushed sweet mango pickle instead of the chutney.

    i used this as a base to use things up in my kitchen. i used three medium potatos, 2 small onions, 5 cloves garlic (more than the usual person!) and browned it in olive oil, then added the curry, then 3 minutes later added 11/2 cups of vegetable stock, 3/4 cup of red lentils, 1x 400 gram of crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper. then simmered for 20 minutes and it was absolutely LOVELY. will use this as a base recipe and will try different vege's and ingredients in the future.  -  30 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fabulous!!! I used frozen cauliflower and diced tomatoes. Also added one large sweet potato and 4 small potatoes instead of the 1 1/2 lbs of white potatoes. So delicious and healthy!! Thank you for any other recipes you may offer. So easy to make!  -  14 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
