    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    In France, a man called Parmentier is credited with popularising potatoes. This is why any dish with his name in is likely to contain potatoes. This is another recipe which I have adapted from a 'Pan or Wok' recipe card from International Masters Publishers.

      Very interesting combination of textures with the potatoes and lentils and crunchy little mustard seeds. Took a few bites to adjust, but liked it.
