Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

For accurate calorie count, it seems one must use 1 cup pre-COOKED rice, or much less uncooked rice. Made with 1 cup UNCOOKED rice, the calories/1 serving is about twice as much as listed. 1 cup uncooked rice=675 cal, so each serving would have 110 cal just from the rice, +more from the lentils,etc Submitted by:

I don't usually add salt to my foods but I found this very bland without the salt. With 1 tsp of salt it's delicious. Submitted by:

This was tasty, but I would probably add more garlic and ginger next time, and definitely add a pinch of salt as I was using fresh tomatoes and not canned. Submitted by:

This was very delicious!! My whole family liked it! I see where others might think that it needs more salt, but I thought thatit was just right! I used brown rice instead of white rice. Also, it was very fast and easy to make!! Great dish for a last needed meal! Submitted by:

I loved this recipe. I had no salt issues with this. I even used "no salt added" tomatoes and still thought it was terrific. Will definitely make this again. Submitted by:

Great low salt recipe! I used "no salt added" tomatoes and realized halfway through eating it that I forgot to add the lemon! Definitely made a difference. I omitted the cilantro though. Lentils were a little under cooked for my taste, so I would have simmered another 3-4 minutes. Rice was perfect. Submitted by:

Just made a pot of this and loved it. I had to sub powders for garlic and ginger, omitted the onion, used brown rice, and it turned out delicious! Those who said it wasn't salty enough maybe need to cut back? I eat very little salt and this tasted great to me. Great high fibre side for meat dishes! Submitted by:

I added some cumin, garam masala, salt, turmeric, and a little more curry powder. Also substituted brown rice for white. Excellent and filling meal! Submitted by:

This was pretty good, though I'm a person who enjoys more kick in her curry. I put in some cumin, about three times the garlic, some salt and a bit more curry powder. After that, it was hard to stop eating this. Submitted by:

Great for even meat lovers. Easy, quick to make. Added 1 tsp salt. Not a curry and ginger fan, so added only 1 tsp of each. Lemon juice makes it. Served with a dollop of light sour cream and cornbread. DH had seconds. Submitted by:

I replaced the white rice with brown and the cilantro with parsley. Also realized mid-recipe I didn't have any curry! But still delicious. Added a pinch of salt & pepper & dash of Frank's Red Hot to my bowl for more flavor. YUM!! My very picky 8 year old even liked it - without the Red Hot. Submitted by:

This is wonderful! We love curry. I used no salt added tomatoes and brown rice. This summer I'll use garden tomatoes. Yummy! Submitted by:

I come from India. And this is almost a staple diet for some of us. Love it. Thanks Paula for sharing. One option is to pressure cook the lentils - with a ratio of 1:1 Lentils 1 Water 1. You can try this with Kidney Beans as well - dont know how it will affec the calories though :-) Submitted by:

I would love to make this, but would prefer to use brown rice. I see several comments saying it needed more flavor,so I would add more seasonings..not salt. Submitted by:

I will make this but I'll substitute the white rice for brown rice and maybe even had some tofu for protein. Submitted by:

Haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a good dish for me - low fat, low cholesteral. I like the idea of fresh lemon and will probably add the zest as well. Submitted by:

Doesn't sound very filling for a soup. Needs some protein I would add chicken or beef if I chose to make this. Submitted by:

I used brown rice instead of the white. Neither my husband or I cared for this. We felt it had too much curry and definetly needed some salt. Submitted by:

This is delicious. I added 1 tsp of garlic salt and only cooked for 15 minutes. Very satisfying! Submitted by:

Where's the salt? This was tasteless. When I added quite a bit of salt to the finished product, it wasn't half bad. I'll probably make again adding a tsp of salt. (admittedly I used fresh tomatoes. Does that make a difference?) Submitted by:
