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.
