    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    When I first posted this recipe, I hadn't made it, I had posted it for a tag game, but encouraged by the positive reviews it has received, I made it this weekend, and took it as a gift for my friend, who loves hot curries and dahls. Its a little hot for my personal taste, but she loved it! Easy and quick to make, it comes from the Very Easy Vegetarian Cookbook, by Simon & Alison Holst

    Directions:

    1. 1

    3. 3
      Add bay leaf and spices and cook, stirring continuously, for 1 to 2 minutes longer.
    4. 4
      Tip in the lentils and the stock (made with the water and the stock powder), bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover the pan with a lid whilst simmering, so that the liquid does not evaporate too quickly.

      We loved this dahl and my guests appreciated this as well.
      It's easy to combine and prepare. I followed the recipe as described, but I had to add more water while cooking as the lentils adsorbed a lot of them.
      Thanks a lot for posting this recipe.

      My husband loved this recipe - it was way too hot for me though! I also found that I needed to add more liquid as it cooked. Will be making it again with half the seasoning mixture :D For ZWT8.

      Easy and awesome! The only thing I changed was the amount of chili, because I can't eat so much chili. We loved it, and I know I'll make it again because it's so easy. My red lentils became mushy after 20 minutes, and the liquid was soaked up, so I removed them from the heat and let them sit covered until they were served. Worked like a charm. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for For your Consideration Tag Game.
