    This recipe came out so good. My partner isn’t a fan of lentils but he still have it his stamp of approval.

    My first time making this and I absolutely love it. Trying to go vegetarian and this definitely fits the bill and without having me be hungry a little while later.

    Substituted curry powder with Penang curry and canned tomatoes with a tomato sauce I made. Added more garlic. Used 2 cups coconut milk. Lastly, did half cup green and half cup black lentils. It was so yummy, first lentil recipe I’ve made that I like and will make over and over.

    I love this recipe! Wow, so easy, creamy and tasty. Its actually a little sweet and you really can’t taste the lentils. I used a bigger can of tomatoes and added some chicken broth instead of water. I will make it again very soon.

    Yummy, although master 6 didn’t like it very much. Miss 14 did. I added grated courgette and grated carrot and a vegetable stock cube to add a bit more flavour.

    I used tomato paste instead & I only had curry powder & turmeric powder for the spices. It was still very flavorful! I served it with rice noodles.

    Loved it, so tasty! Took it to a family dinner and was asked for the recipe twice. I substituted the lentils to all red for the sake of time.
