Top Review by Soobeeoz

This is quick and easy to make, healthy and satisfying, and it tastes great, so it ticks all the right boxes for me. I used a brown onion, red lentils, vine-ripened tomatoes, 3/4 tsp of hot chilli flakes, 1 heaped tsp of ginger paste, 2 cups of vegetable stock, 1 cup of water, and the other ingredients as listed in the recipe. Cooking it on the stove top took around 20 minutes. I omitted the salt, adding a little to the finished dish along with some freshly cracked black pepper. We had it with Tilde (2 min) basmati rice and another dish from this site. Loved it!
