    ketchupqueen's Note:

    I've been reading books by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and giving myself Indian food cravings, so I went to the cupboard and came up with this easy, yummy dish. Warning: this is fairly spicy (but not burn-your-tongue-out spicy). If you like it less spicy, reduce the amounts of seasoning and garlic dramatically. Substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth to make it vegan.

      We had this for dinner tonight but I'm sorry it was not half as good as I had imagined it would be. I did tone down the spices and I'm wondering if it was because of that that the taste was pretty ordinary. I may try this again.

      I liked this very much--in fact, more than I anticipated. The combination of the stir fried cabbage--very sweet and crispy--with the lentil mixture--very soft and spicy--was lovely. However, I found that the amounts of liquid called for in the recipe are inadequate to allow for softening/cooking of the rice and lentils.
