      This was so tasty and easy. I sauteed the onion in the oil first, then added the ginger/garlic paste once they were starting to brown (then added the seeds). My 14 month old loved it too! Not too spicy for him like many of the curry recipes I've tried. Will definitely make frequently - and double the recipe. Didn't make much if eating as the main meal

      Very good! My lentils took longer than 15 minutes to cook all the way through, but still a quick and healthy weeknight meal.
