Pop this fast and fragrant vegetarian dish into the oven and forget it till the timer rings. Serve as a main course on a bed of wilted spinach to add color and maximize iron absorption or serve as a side with Turkish Chicken Thighs.

Delicious and Filling

I used red lentils and wehani rice in the recipe, and it really turned out great! For a bit more zing I added some minced hot peppers and it made for an excellent taste sensation! Wehani is a chewier rice (which I like personally) and it holds together well.

I agree with the others that it did need more salt. I think if someone isn't eating a ton of processed food, and instead cooking something like this for supper, a bit more salt will not hurt.

Delicious!

This meal was very simple to prepare and very tasty! I used 1 tsp. ground cinnamon instead of a stick and omitted the ginger because I don't have any. I also doubled the salt like others recommended and it came out great! I will definitely make this again!

Easy, tasty

I agree with the previous commenter -- needs 1.5 to 2 times as much salt as is called for.

As written, it produces a fragrant and mildly flavorful dish that can stand on its own as a side, but needs yogurt (or something) to serve as a main dish. The seasonings should also be increased.

I would rank this recipe as a good/great. Not in my top 25 of all time. Its decent, but nothing to write home about. Then again, the smell was FANTASTIC. It smelled like this was going to be a winner, but once tasted, it was disappointing. Which made no sense because i added 6 garlic cloves and a little bit more of the curry powder. To attempt to correct this, I added a tad bit more of salt and then the flavors popped. So I would suggest doubling the salt. I would make it again because it was super easy, but this recipe is not going to be a regular.
