    Substituted curry powder with Penang curry and canned tomatoes with a tomato sauce I made. Added more garlic. Used 2 cups coconut milk. Lastly, did half cup green and half cup black lentils. It was so yummy, first lentil recipe I’ve made that I like and will make over and over.

    I love this recipe! Wow, so easy, creamy and tasty. Its actually a little sweet and you really can’t taste the lentils. I used a bigger can of tomatoes and added some chicken broth instead of water. I will make it again very soon.

    Yummy, although master 6 didn’t like it very much. Miss 14 did. I added grated courgette and grated carrot and a vegetable stock cube to add a bit more flavour.

    Me Mum really enjoyed eating it as much as I liked cooking it. There is a hint of spice in there, that makes the coconut flavour less strong but still quite interesting. I will definitely be doing it again. Thanks!

    I used tomato paste instead & I only had curry powder & turmeric powder for the spices. It was still very flavorful! I served it with rice noodles.

    I added a bit more garlic and took a little liberty on variation but the combo of spices made this delicious and easy to pull together

    Loved it, so tasty! Took it to a family dinner and was asked for the recipe twice. I substituted the lentils to all red for the sake of time.
