I thought this was good, but not spectacular. It was definitely too bland for me, even after adding extra curry powder, chili, and salt. Next time I'll probably just double all of the spices. Otherwise, no complaints. Since it makes a lot (for one person at least) I mixed it with rice and froze it in individual portions. It freezes and reheats very well.

Pretty darn tasty. My only complaint is that it was a little bland - I added lots of sriracha and yogurt. The flavors married a bit and I thought the overall taste was better the second day. Good easy go-to recipe.

this recipe is brilliant - it had so much flavour. I cooked it without the dried chillies and substitued them with some black pepper as in the other review. I did this so that it would not carry too much heat for my children - they loved it. I also brushed some wholemeal pittas with melted butter and toasted them in a hot oven for about 10 mins so the y crisped up - this acted as a poppadom to dip into the curry. Definitley a hit with us and one we'll be cooking regularly. Thanks.

I just finished making this wonderful, comforting dish. I didn't have red lentils, however; I had regular brown lentils and this made a good substitute. The curry powder is way over the top delicious, coupled with the turmeric, potatoes, and dried chilies. I made this as an accompaniment with Peanut Butter Pork Tenderloin, which was a marriage made in heaven. I used a spritz of lemon juice right on the top after it had completed cooking and I think I could of eaten the whole bowl. Thank you so much for a delightful comforting dish. Will make quite often, thank you so much White Rose Child.

This IS AWESOME! I adapted it by subbing 2 1/2 cups of diced peeled sweet potatoes for the potatoes and carrots. I added them in step 1 and cooked it all for 30 minutes then moved on to step 3. Worked great. I also used 1/4 tsp ground black pepper for the dried chilies. Great flavor. Made for the Please review game.
