I didn't like brown rice and despised lentils. This recipe changed that. I do enjoy a good curry! I didn't like brown rice and despised lentils. This recipe changed that. I do enjoy a good curry!

  • This was OK. I think the flavor would be better with an Indian curry mix. It was quick, easy and filling. I made it in the rice cooker. - 4/16/14

  • Not bad, would have worked better if I'd cooked it in my rice cooker. At first it was too crunchy so I added water & cooked longer, but then it turned into mush. Not sure if I'll try it again, but maybe with adding carrots and a bit more spice. - 8/29/12
