I enjoyed this very much. It was tasty, healthy and filling. I followed the recipe as written and when it was done, I added a splash of red wine vinegar. I used a good-quality madras curry powder. Delicious! Thanx for sharing!

This is really fast and simple. I cut the recipe in half and used 1 veggie bouillon. I upped the curry powder to double the amount but I looooove curry so..... Really good with rice or in a sourdough bread bowl.

I used homemade chicken stock in place of half the water. This is a great little vegetarian recipe. I ate the leftovers with a little extra stock as a soup the next day for lunch. I found no reason to soak them overnight. They were completely done in about 45 minutes.
