i used brown lentils in place of pigeon peas, and 1.5 tsp curry powder in place of curry leaves, and 1 tbsp sambal in place of red pepper flakes, and 1 full tsp salt - i didn't have fresh coconut so i just poured in about 1/4 cup the fat from coconut milk - everything else i left the same. I did have to add extra water during cooking - 2 cups was just not enough - it simmered out too quickly. anyways, it was good - better than expected and we served it with cornmeal and poppyseed roti from veganomican cookbook - very delcious combo. it's very filling - although not something i'd want to eat all the time - lentils have a very distinct flavor and they are not my favorite but i try to eat them now and again b/c they are good for you and when you choose the vegetarian lifestyle it's nice to try something different once in a while. I have a lot of leftovers and i think i'll make it into soup - i'll add some vegetable broth and chopped tomatoes - and we will use up the rest of the roti as dipping bread then.
