Recipe by justcallmetoni

I love lentils for their versatility. Found this recipe in an old Cooking Light magazine and was taken by this unconventional treatment. Though I have not tried this one, I'm making it public now for all my Zaar buddies. Will update after trying it out.

Delicious lentil dish. As others have said, needed to cook longer than stated time to get soft texture. The sauce was that perfect blend of tangy-sweet. Thanks for sharing this one.
