    Sue Lau's Note:

    This lentil soup is done in more of an Asian style than some of the others. Goes well with chapatis or pooris and a light salad. Recipe by Nancie McDermott.

      This was great! The second time I made this dish I added some red pepper flakes (about a 1/2 tsp.) to give some heat to this spiced soup. Served with flame heated tortillas instead of naan, a dollup of sour cream, and some cilantro. Dreamy...

      This was good! I used split red lentils because that's the only kind I can find and only added 2 cups water (we like thicker soups) but followed all other directions to a "T". We served Roti / Phulkas #90817 on the side, which went really well and added a dollop of yogurt on top. I was kind of surprised that this did not taste more spiced, considering how many/how much spices are in it. I was very happy with the flavor the sesame seeds and the almost caviar-like black mustard seeds bursting in your mouth. Tasty. This is a good recipe.
