    spatchcock's Note:

    This is a recipe I adopted from Zenith's recipe collection when many unloved recipes were put up for adoption. All of her recipes were very good and this is no exception. Here's what Zenith had to say about this dish: A tasty vegetarian one-pot meal. (If you're not a vegetarian, you may wish to make this with chicken broth.)

      I was running short on time, so I threw everything in a covered casserole dish and baked in oven. Used cumin instead of curry and omitted raisins, because of family preferences. Tasty, delicious, I could eat this as a meal. Love my rice and lentils.

      When I've made curried lentils in the past, it turns into a big pot of mush. For some reason, the addition of the rice really helped everything to hold it's shape in this recipe. The texture was really nice. The addition of the apples was wonderful, and although I was skeptical, the raisins were great. The only significant change I made was to add all the garlic when sauteeing the onions. Everyone in our household loved this dish. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
