To quote Randy Jackson, this was just okay for me, Dog. To be fair, I've never had Dal before - easy or otherwise - and I've not eaten lentils before, so this was a real first. Tasted a little bland to me, so added some more curry and some red pepper flakes. Like others, I thought the addition of avocado and carrot clever. I will try again. Thanks for posting.

Excellent, and super easy! It took about twice as long to cook the lentils, however. I added a little salt and pepper - personal preference.

This was perfect. I used 1/2 tsp of curry powder and it seemed right. I am at high altitude so it wasn't so much soup as it was just cooked lentils by the time the lentils were soft. The avocado and carrots gave it a great flavor and texture. Served with a salad and some bread/pita. Thanks!

Just as it says, quick and easy, just what I needed. It is so delicious. I must admit that I was in a real hurry when I made this and I just threw everything into the same pan and didn't cook the onions and spices together before adding them to the lentils, still it was so tasty and all my tribe aged 5, 12, 14 and 17 really did enjoy it. I love the addition of the avocado and carrot and I served it with brown basmati, pappadoms and cucumber with tomatoes in yogurt. Fantastic. Now I am hungry so I think I'll go make it again!!!!

This is very nice. I would have liked to have known how much curry powder to put in, as someone pretty new to this kind of cooking. I used garam masala and reduced the oil to just under 1 tbsp. I loved the addition of the carrots and avocado! For my personal taste I will probably only put about 1/4 of the onion in with the lentils and fry up the rest. And I might find an extra large onion, I loved that part! Thanks so much!
