      This was a really great recipe! Am always on the lookout for new ways to use lentils--so healthy & inexpensive! I DID change the spice amounts--upped them to add more flavor. For the meatballs, I used parmesan cheese in place of the olive oil mayo, which I didn't use. I used 3/4 tsp garam masala & added 1/4 tsp garlic powder. I used dried parsley & left out the lemon--used lean ground turkey & used less black pepper. For the stew, I left out the potato (personal preference; I may include it next time!), upped all the spices & used regular lentils. I needed about 1/2 more water to keep the broth going--and the lentils look about 30 min to cook at a hard boil. Served w/ whole wheat naan bread. Thanks so much for sharing!
