Really Good
This is so simple to make and tastes really good. The kit has the lentils in it, making the whole procedure even more simple. My previous untutored attempt at curry and lentils ended in a flavourless brown sludge. There were plenty of leftovers (which no-one ate).

Either I've got magically better at making Dahl, or this kit is really, really, REALLY good. Loads of interesting and varied flavours, great texture and happy munching all round.

Buy this. You will be really happy that you did.
