Every Friday I take a couple of dips to share at work. This tasty dish had everyone stumped as to the ingredients. I did have to make one change -- I was out of red lentils! I don't think that's ever happened in my house, so I had to replace with moong dal (yellow lentils) which cooked at about the same speed. Perfect results and fabulous flavour. Thanks for posting.

Nice flavor and easy to make. I simmered for 10 minutes but should have added the extra 5 to cook off more of the liquid. It might not of been as thick as others but it stayed on my chip when I scooped it up, so that is all that mattered. Made for *ZWT 6* I'm on Team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*
