Vegetarian Bean Curry

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"This is a basic recipe that you can play with for seasonings and ingredients. My first batch was good, but since then I've experimented with more or less spice, other veggies like mushrooms, and meat. It's different every time I make it now. Serve over basmati rice with naan bread."

After reading most of the reviews, I can see that I probably should have mentioned that the lentils used in this recipe are the tiny orange lentils that cook very quickly. I get mine from the o...

Very good! I used about 3/4 a can of leftover coconut milk which made it nice and creamy!! Served with an Indian style rice. Delicious!!!

This was really delicious! I left out the raisins because my kids don't care for them. I also pre-cooked the lentils in some chicken broth (I know that negated the vegetarian aspect of the dis...
