I didn't add the yogurt as indicated. Instead, I added it to each bowl individually. It tasted very fresh! Also, I noticed that the leftover taste was even better than the night before! Great recipe! I will definitely cook it again and again!

Easy to make soup! I let those who were enjoying the soup add their own hot sauce. Wonderful taste!

This was wonderful! I had to change the broth to vegetable because my husband's gone alkaline but this soup was delicious, thick and hearty!

Yum! I added a few stalks of chopped celery w/ leaves, an extra cup of stock, and cooked it all day in the slow cooker on high (didn't sautee veggies). I added 1 Tbsp dried mint at the beginning, did not puree, and added yogurt to individual bowls before serving. Everybody in my family loved this and every last drop was eaten within 2 days!!

I left out the mint and instead of hot sauce I used dried cayenne pepper. It was very spicy for my taste, but I was making it for my Pakistani fiance. He said that he hadn't had dahl this good since he had been back home! I served it with roti and it was a delicious light dinner for a cold night!

Yum! I made this using stock that I made from the Thanksgiving turkey. I followed other reviewers' suggestion to add dollops of yogurt at the end. Also to note: I had about 7-8 cups of stock and used all of it (kept all other measurements the same), but the lentils really soaked it up so you could potentially add even more stock. Definitely will be making this a regular in our house!

We loved this recipe. It was fast and very flavorful. We like a strong curry flavor so I added more curry powder. I also added a dollop pf yogurt when serving it rather than blending it in. I'm not a big mint fan and would skip it next time.

I love this recipe. So easy and so delicious. I use vegetable bouillon instead of chicken broth. The yogurt adds richness to the recipe. It's pretty good without the yogurt, but amazing with it.
