      This is a very tasty dish. I don't used canned beans so I put 2/3 cup dry lentils and 2/3 cup small red beans in my pressure cooker with 4 cups of water and cooked for 15 minutes. After the beans came to pressure, I continued the recipe from the top. It turned out fabulous! The yogurt is optional as I forgot to add it at the end and never missed it.

      A tasty, simple way to prepare lentils. I was looking for a copy cat recipe for the lentils madras that Costco sells. This is similar, but was lacking some depth of flavor. I ended up adding some nutritional yeast diluted in water, about a 1/4 t. of corriander, tumeric and a pinch of cinnamon. I was closer to what I was looking for. But, as is this a tasty recipe, just not quite what I was looking for. Thanks so much for sharing this version.
