Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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."
"Really good lentils! I halved the oil, and omitted the cardamom and cinnamon, as DH isn't a big fan. I also followed other reviewers comments and doubled the coriander, cumin and tomatoes. They were spicy, but not overly so. Generous portions too, fed 4 with brown rice. Reminiscent of Indian daal, delicious!"
"Tonight I served these with Peri-Peri Chicken, grilled asparagus and a Greek salad. My husband is not usually a fan of Indian food, but he loved the lentils and said they tasted like some we ate in an upscale DC restaurant a few days ago. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I made a third for two and had enough left for another serving. I used a tablespoon of oil and increased the ginger and cayenne. The dish is spicy but not hot. It goes well with spicy hot entrees. I've made some of your other recipes and am always pleased. You are some cook!"
"This was not too bad, could have been more spicy. If i do make this again, i think i'll inrease the spices by half again and see what happens. Not sure if my husband will try it but we'll see."
"I am afraid my family did not care for this. Made from ZWT 7."
"The lentils were delicious. I would definitely make this dish again. I did not use as much oil, only about 1 tablespoon to keep the onion/garlic from sticking. All else as per the recipe and it is definitely flavorful and spicy. A great alternative to mash potatoes. Thank you."
"I halved the recipe and since I was eating alone there was still a lot left. I used red lentils which look orange to me. I'm not sure whether they are the same product. In any case, the end result was delicious. I served it with recipe#262781."
"Very tasty lentils. I halved the recipe right down the line. Good spicing and a flavourful accompaniment to your Recipe #262781."
"Very good an nutritious. I had with brown basmati as part of the core Weight Watchers. Next time I will try adding a little more spices and tomato. I might also try with brown lentils."
"Very nice. I used just a little less cayenne, used powdered cumin and cardamom. I also halved the recipe. Different and delicious! Thank you Rita!"
"This was very good! I only made half the recipe and it still made quite a lot. I added a dollop of red Curry Paste to this also & that added even more flavor to an already flavorful dish. This is something I will make often...thanks so much for sharing this one!"
"Really fantastic recipe. Outstanding, complex spice blend with sweet and hot touches. I used less oil (about a tablespoon), and as a result it came out a bit dry. Maybe next time I would add more tomatoes, but that's it. Had this as a main dish with a refreshing salad side. New spice combination for me, thanks very much!"
