    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.
