This recipe is from Gourmet Today and is a South African take on an East Indian Lentil Stew. Not too spicy, but very fragrant according to the recipe notes. Haven't tried this recipe yet, but plan to very soon. Prep time does not include soaking time for lentils.
This yogurt-based marinade is a traditional Indian marinade. The acid in the yogurt works to tenderize the meat. Recipe does not give a marinating timeframe; however, if using it on meat you would need to marinate long enough for the yogurt to do its job of tenderizing the meat.
Taken from my "In Good Taste" cookbook (El Dorado Service League). I have not tried this dish; however, it sounds really delicious. I love the idea of the browned onions, cashews and raisins served atop the rice and green peas.
Can't wait to try this aromatic dish! I love my slow cooker because I can brown the meat in it and then switch to slow cooker mode. Whether or not you have to brown the meat separately or not, this seems to be a very easy, yet flavorful, dish.
