This dish smells of an old hippie lady who only eats potpourri and gluten free bread farting in the middle of a whole foods grocery store. The taste is quite inconsistent too. I had to add garam masala to at least get some ethnic orientation for the dish, maybe it's headed in a nepalese direction? Ms. O'dea doesn't even know... The main positive point for this dish is that it gets texture right, the chickpeas and lentils are perfect for such a plate. Otherwise, stay clear of this unless you want some co-worker eyeballing you from a distance as they wonder who threw their Tom's deodorant stick in the microwave for funsies.

Great ! My kids even ate it - I didn't follow the exact proportions and it was delish- I'd make it again
