This was great, easy comfort food. Definitely caramelize the onions! So-o-o good! I use broth instead of just water, and as suggested mix a spoonful of the yogurt with parsley or mint as well, into my serving, or eat it on the side with cucumber slices. I took others' suggestions and added or used in place of other spices, garlic powder and powdered ginger, allspice, powdered clove and cinnamon along with cumin. I have also used some sweet curry powder. This is not particularly spicy so for more flavour you can double the amounts of some of the spices. To avoid getting gas, add 2-3 whole clove (the spice, not the garlic) in cooking water of lentils. Gives nice subtle flavour and helps your digestion! We also like to add French Fried onions on top, along with the caramelized onions. Gives a nice salty crunchiness and texture. My husband added chopped fresh chilis from our garden for heat. So you can personalize this recipe depending on what you have on hand.
