    Very good. The toasted coconut adds a next texture on top of the seasoned lentils.

    This was certainly a weeknight friendly dish and it also a very flavorful vegetarian main. Each bowl is topped with 2 tsps of butter. I thought about omitting the butter, but it definitely added a little something something. The dish tasted richer and smoother. Yes, everything is better with butter. I don't think I've ever "braised" lentils before and this certainly had great depth of flavor. Is it genius? Not so sure, but I liked the dish. This also appears on p 275 of Melissa Clark's "Cook This Now".

    Delicious - this dish has lovely layered flavours due to the way the dish is cooked, and it is so easy to make! Possibly too much tomato flavour for my partner, but I thought it was great as the coriander and yoghurt helps offset the richness of the lentils.
