    The potatoes in this recipe take on the spicy flavours beautifully - the perfect veggie supper. Serve with yogurt and nan bread if you wish.

      The advantages of this casserole are that it is hearty, healthy, and yields a lot. However, we really didn't care for it that much. I made on the stovetop in the Dutch oven. We found it took about 3 times the amount of time to get it to the right consistency. Perhaps I should have initially turned the heat up higher, but I didn't want to scorch it. I used hot curry powder, which wasn't too hot in the overall dish. The recipe didn't state when to put the tomatoes in, so we put it in at the stage we added the lentils and other ingredients.

      My stove top was not working so I had to improvise. I put everything into a casserole and used the slow cook feature on my oven. After 3 hours this was perfect. I used yellow curry paste and chicken broth. Thanks for the recipe.
