    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from Linda Fraser's book, The Book of Curries and Indian Foods. This is great served in pitas (I use Pita Bread for the Breadmaker) with shredded or torn lettuce and chopped tomato. Cook time doesn't include the 2 hours required to soak the lentils after picking through them.
