      This is a very simple and delicious recipe. I used 3 fresh tomatoes instead of tomato paste and vegetable broth instead of water. It doesn't use any fancy ingredients and it is yummy and quick!

      I think I would have used fresh tomatoes for the tomato paste but I did use fresh ginger for powdered. I was expecting the lentils to have more thickness consistency. Next time I will reduce the amount of water, and use broth. Had a nice little bite to it. Did garnish the final dish with fresh cilantro leaves and scooped up the lentils with Rita L.'s 140763.
