Heatherina 9y agoI used pre-ground cumin and coriander, and I think it was way too much. The spices were incredibly overwhelming for the amount of lentils and potatoes, and I generally love spicy Indian food. I would make this again, but either increase the amount of lentils, potatoes and broth, or reduce the spices.
