      This is a very good recipe. I adapted it a bit for my wife, who doesn't like spicy foods, and she really liked it.

      Update to Review: I prefer this with regular green lentils, the red lentils turn too watery for me, the green ones thicken up better, more like split peas. I enjoyed this recipe very much! Wanting to make more of it, I doubled the amount of lentils (and therefore the water and spices) accordingly. Noting some previous comments about flavor, I cooked the cauliflower briefly in the spice-oil mixture before adding it to the pot, because I wanted the cauliflower to absorb as much flavor as possible. I tossed in some green pepper and chicken that I needed to finish up at step 3 as well. Tried this in a slow cooker and it worked great.
