      I like this better than the bean stew my serbian husband makes:) I completely forgot to add the sour cream, I will next time, it sounds great. I didn't measure everything exactly, I used a bit more garlic and hot paprika and it was delicious. If you don't eat this type of thing everyday, you would really enjoy it in cooler weather. I also cheated and did not precook the lentils, but added them dry at step 3 since they cook fairly quickly. Hvala, nitko!
