    I added a tsp. of garam masala and coriander because my version turned out bland-- I put too much liquid in because I didn't use dried beans. My bad! I garnished w/ fresh cilantro and mango chutney and added 2 cans of beans-- delicious with some tweaking. Next time I'll add fresh ginger. - 2/8/09

    I couldn't find split mung beans, so substituted garbanzo beans (canned) and reduced water to 4 cups. Added ginger, coriander and pepper. Delicious. - 5/15/08

    I've made it twice in a regular pot; didn't see the need for pressure cooker -- but soaking the mung will reduce cooking time. Also added sauteed onions, ginger, pepper, and salt. Very easy and tasteful! I have tried lately adding wild and brown rice to vary the presentation. - 6/20/08

    I made this yesterday and it was delicious! It's a colorful, healthy, and quite tasty mixture of foods. There isn't much salt in this dish, so we added a bit of salt to suit our own taste. I'm looking forward to serving this to my vegetarian friends. - 5/18/08
