    Sandra Hyde's Note:

    A simple vegetarian curry. Split peas can be used instead of lentils. And the curry seasoning should be adjusted to taste.

      On its own this would be good, however, I wanted more. I used this as a base. I added chopped green onion, mashed banana and some cumin and wrapped it in a tortilla and enjoyed it tremendously. I also have plenty of leftovers to do it again!! Thanks for posting this Sandra.

      I loved this recipe! I didn't have chili powder, so I used cayenne. I also added some finely chopped (almost pureed in my food processor) carrots for a bit more flavour. I might add some different vegetables next time. Delicious!

      I randomly bought a bag of red lentils today and this was one of the first recipes my search engine provided me with, so I made it. SO IMPRESSED. I added a bit of garlic in with the onions, some ghost pepper and a little curry paste as well. I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis.
