YUMM!!! Wow! This is good!
This really was an aromatic dish, and sweet too. I halved this recipe and it still gave alot to feed for my family. I like having raisins in this dish, and it was very filling in the end.
These are really good! But they are really for people who are a bit adventuresome in their eating, because you really don't expect lentils to be sweet. I thought that red lentils would break apart too fast, and we don't have yellow lentils here, so I used the greenish-brown ones, which held up nicely. I love the fact that it has so much ginger in it, which I grated frozen on my Microplane zester. I used lemon juice instead of the rose water/lime option, dates as opposed to raisins, and instead of 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds I just upped the pistachios to 1 1/2 cups and used a handful of sunflower seeds. We had this as a side dish with cottage pie on a wintry, rainy Saturday, with warm challah and a nice glass of Cabernet. Thanks for posting!
