The aroma had the entire house swooning. The taste didn't disappoint. I used a different variety of lentils, even though the dish is called Kali for the black lentils, and it was fine. I had to omit cream at the end but that also was fine. This was by far the easiest Indian dish I've made to date. Once again, food processor saves the day.
I am out of beluga AND le puy lentils so i used plain brown ones. DELICIOUS! And the cream gave it the coziness that we needed on the coolest night so far this season.
