I thought this was quite bland. I ended up adding some garlic, more turmeric and some ground mustard seed, sauteed onions and more salt. It was better but nothing fabulous. Won't bother to make again

This recipe got me to happily eat a veggie that I usually hate. The beans cook down without getting mushy and the rest of the ingredients make a nice sauce. I substituted yellow split peas for the lentils (as another reviewer suggested, I added extra), and added cumin seeds, some coriander seeds, and a dried chili pepper to the mustard seeds. Healthful and tasty.

A good, tasty recipe. Most of the prep is cutting up the beans. We used 8 oz. frozen green beans and 4 T. lentils, and we added onion, garlic, fenugreek, and a little curry powder. Something in it was too bitter for us, so we'll try it without the fenugreek next time.

What a delicious and interesting dish. I had some leftover green beans and thought I'd give this a try. The mustard seeds and turmeric gave a great flavor to it. We all enjoyed this so much that I have it on my list to make again, although next time I'll add twice the amount of lentils, but that's just a personal preference. I'm so glad I found this recipe -- thanks for sharing!

I love this recipe! It is simple and delicious. I added onion, garlic, curry leaves and fenugreek seeds. I will make it again and again with rice as a simple meal.

Made this one for lunch this afternoon. I quite liked it. I added an additional cup of water for the French beans to cook in. Thanks for the recipe!
