    This is a good lentil recipe. I added diced green and red bell peppers and some broccoli when I made it. I also used about 5 cloves of garlic and added red pepper flakes. I omitted the yogurt and added one can of diced tomatoes while it was simmering.

    I was excited to try this because it would be considered Core for Weight Watchers (if you use ff chicken broth and plain nf yogurt). It was good, but not my favorite thing ever. The curry flavor in this is very strong and the spices just didn't taste rounded, I felt like it was missing something.

    I served with the yogurt on the side as an option (the use of indian yogurt was nice) and subbed diced tomatoes for tomato puree. This was tasty and even my picky sis ate hers. I added some chili powder to make it spicier and another teaspoon of curry powder.

    I'd never had lentils before, but these were really good! I've made them several times. I omitted the coriander (I'm not much on cilantro flavor). Also, I never seem to have any plain yogurt, so I use 1/2 c. sour cream (bad I know) and it turns out great. I also sometimes top it with grated cheese. It almost tastes like a fajita filling.
