    Sharon123's Note:

    In this easy to prepare side dish, yogurt softens the intensity of curry while allowing the spice to impart its distinct, aromatic flavor.

      This is simple and good. I'm cutting on fat(as much as I can and wherever I can) so I cooked this in a slightly different way. I omitted the oil totally. I followed steps 1,2 and 3 as they are. While the lentils were cooking, I grated the carrot and put it into a bowl. To this I added honey, salt, yoghurt, curry powder, parsley and the drained lentil-onion mixture. I mixed it all well and then transferred it to a serving bowl. I served it immediately(hot). I liked the crunchiness of the grated carrot in this and the overall flavour was well balanced, too. It was not too spicy nor too sweet. Just right! I did not add the apple(just a personal preference of my family because they don't like me mixing fruits with vegetables, so I had to leave that out). This makes a nice lentil-yoghurt side dish. Thanks for posting!

      I thought this was really delicious, but just a smidge lacking in flavour. (To be fair I have really bold tastes.) But it was very well balanced, with the curry and the honey and the apples. Yum. Thanks for the recipe - I'll still make it again.

      Very very good! I used dried apples which I thought worked out quite well. I love the crunchy and sweet flavor you get from the apples and carrots! Great contrast! :) I did use more curry then called for after reading the other reviews and I think it could still use a bit more. Next time I'll probably use more like 3 1/2 tsp. Thanks for another great lentil recipe Sharon!
