    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    This is the Indian original, which inspired the classic breakfast dish known as Kedgeree. Made with basmati rice and small, tasty lentils, this will make an ample supper or brunch dish. From: The Inspired Vegetarian

      I love it! I put plain yogurt and cilantro on top and it really makes it!

      This was a winner in our house! I reduced the rice and lentils for two of us as a side dish but forgot to reduce the spices. It was awesome! I had some leftovers I was going to save but did a midnight raid on the fridge. I regret not making the full recipe now.
      Thanks so much for posting. Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT 8

      Everyone thought the rice just tasted ok. I made as directed but for some reason it was a little bland. Sorry I couldn't rate it higher. Made for Ramadan Tag
