      I served this cold with a vegetarian picnic I planned and it was absolutely delicious both hot and cold (had a little taste while still warm). I forgot to put the tomatoes in until after it was all cooked but it worked out fine to put them in after. Thanks for another keeper Rita! Made and enjoyed for team Mischief Makers - ZWT #7 :)

      This was a nice way to do lentils. I liked the flavor combinations with all the spices listed, and really loved the tomatoes. Next time I think I'd use ground cardamom and mince the garlic. Thank you! Made for ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.

      Yum, this is really tasty! I love all the spices. I also did not use the oil (just a spray or two for the pan) so I used a can of tomatoes which helped balance out the moisture. I will make this again for sure. Thanks for posting.
