JewellzB 2 years agoVery good! I will definitely be keeping this recipe but next time I may reduce the salt by half.

KaryAnca 6 years agoI DID make this. However, I made a few changes and want to try it again more closely following the recipe. My adjustments for this attempt: 1/2 cup red lentils & 1 cup yellow lentils - because I ran out of red lentils. 1/2 tsp salt - because I don't like too much salt and my husband adds salt to everything before tasting, anyway. Simmered, partially covered. Pureed before serving. I found it mild, but not bland, and might increase the spice depending on accompanying dishes.
