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!

I doubled the recipe. Used short grain brown rice, brown lentils. Skipped the raisins and apples due to the family preferences Simmered on stove top for just under an hour. Tasted great. Had some kick to it.

Loved it. Used "green" lentils. They and the rice held their shape perfectly. Chewy and delicious. I added ingredient after ingredient directly to a slow cooker, cooked on high for 3-1/2 hours, stirred, then on low until ready to eat 30 min. later. Left out the apple because I only had a sweet apple. Added the following: 2 cups of fresh chopped kale, 2 T of fresh cilantro, 1 C (about 1/3 of a whole) butternut squash, diced, 1/2 of a red bell pepper - chopped, 1T of wild rice. I sub'd Risotto for brown rice as I was out and didn't realize until I was adding ingredients. I did rinse both the rice & lentils several times before adding. Needed the entire 4 C of water. Served with a couple squirts of Sriracha sauce. Delicious. Thank you.

This is great and makes a ton! I thought I had an apple but it disappeared... it was great regardless. I topped it with a little sour cream since we were out of yogurt. I think it'd be great with an assortment of chutneys. I froze two containers for future use and I think it's be great as a wrap with fresh veggies and a honey and mayo based sauce. Thanks for the keeper!

I too added all the garlic during the sauteeing of the onions, and I also added about a cup of cubed sweet potato and about 1/2 cup of mixed veggies. It was absolutely wonderful! Flavourful, but not spicy, so it's also a great dish for children.

Took quite a while longer to cook, but the flavor was good. Ate it with chutney and lettuce leaves.

This was just okay for us. Mango Chutney on the side helped give it some more zip.
