    Wonderful flavor. Love that it had no oil.

    We found this to be very tasty! I did make a few alterations - First, I sautéed the onion, then other veggies, in olive oil rather than the suggested vegetable broth. I didn’t have tomato sauce, so finely diced 1/2 of a tomato and threw in a few Ts of red pepper paste (which I think really adds to the flavor). I had no lentils, but found the recipe perfectly hearty without them. I also didn’t want it too soupy, so used only a 1/2 C of broth. My husband isn’t a fan of sweet with savory, so I reserved the raisins to just sprinkle on my own serving at the table. We served this with fresh-made flatbread and Mountain High Whole Milk yogurt and really loved it! Thank you for the recipe! I’ll be making it again!

    TL;DR: If you're planning on making this, I recommend finding a different recipe for this dish. This recipe is good in concept... but in reality it is hilariously underseasoned. I cannot comprehend in which world someone would find this dish anything other than flavourless when made according to the listed ingredient ratios. I was dubious about the ratios to begin with, so I started with about 400% the amount of garam masala (2 tsp.) and 1/4 cup extra tomato sauce. As I cooked, and taste-tested throughout, I kept finding it lacking and adding more of the flavourful ingredients. By the time it was done cooking, I had added a total of 3 tsp. garam masala, 2 extra cloves of garlic (total of 7), and an extra 1/4 cup of raisins (total of 3/4 cup), plus 6 pinches of salt and a good amount of fresh ground pepper. After all that, it was pretty good. It still was not very exciting flavour-wise, but it made for a satisfying meal. If I were to make it again, I would completely rethink the ingredient ratios from the start, and possibly even omit either the lentils or chickpeas entirely in order to better concentrate the seasoning.
