Top Review by IngridH

This was very easy to make, and a nice part of an Indian meal. It was also my first time cooking red lentils, and I was very surprised by how fast they cook. The cumin flavor wasn't as prevalent as I had hoped, but I'll try again another time. I served this with a lamb korma and spicy cauliflower, for a great meal. Made for ZWT8
