"This was a very nice dish. Had basmati and used that instead of Jasmine. Since this was not the main meal, I kept the spices exactly as written. I would however, double the spices if this was going..." See more to be the main course. I did add a small piece of cinnamon stick, and ground 3 cloves to add. I also added 1/2 tsp. tumeric for color. Very nice balance of spice. I didn't think the pepper would go w/the taste, so shredded 1 med. carrot instead and gave a beautiful color. Also tossed in a few pistachios during the second 10 min. simmer along w/the raisins and carrot. Potato was perfectly done and added it at the beginning of the simmer. This makes a nice dish and does make alot to feed 4 people by the time one gets the vegetables in there. Will make again. Served this w/"Indian style sheeshk kabab" and "Red Lentil Curry" here on Allrecipes and was a nice meal."
"This was okay, but suffered from some textural problems. With the various additions at different times that necessitated stirring, I thought that the potato got kind of mushy. Next time, I might coo..." See morek the lentils and potato together separately, with their own spices, and stir it all together briefly at the end. The red pepper seemed an odd choice, flavour wise; I would use a hot pepper, next time. The spicing was nice but milder than I prefer, so I added a liberal amount of garam masala after it was done, which helped enormously. The leftovers re-heated well."
