      This was really delicious! I added a good bit of pepper and cayenne to knock it up a bit on the spicy scale. I, like many others, didn't add the milk, but I did serve it with a few healthy spoonfuls of homemade yogurt. It's definitely a good flavorful recipe with enough room for improvisation to satisfy everyone. Thanks DiB's!

      This is great!!!! For the paprika I used 1 tsp regular paprika, and the other tsp Hungarian paprika. Completely forgot about the cayenne... Lol. And I added the juice of three small lemons and used Chopped cilantro instead of mint. Absolutely yummy. Next time I will not be forgetting cayenne and maybe use a mixture of butter/olive oil.

      Well it was very good BUT 30 mins to cook the lentils! Way too short - maybe in a pressure cooker - but not on top of the stove. We had this soup in Patara, Turkey and it's a wonder of flavor and very satisfying. Loved it!
