Thanks got some red and green lentils in the cupboard , whats the deal with yellow ones? They all taste similar to me lol..

Any indian food will have my interest. I love me some indian food . I wil upload a pic of mine when its done though I will probly add a few veggies (sweetcorn/peas).
I am still trying to perfect a samosa recepie too. Have you ever tried this with chickpeas? I added them to a curry recepie and it turned out nice .
Nope never tried with anything else, If you like Indian type food I will add some more recipes over the next few weeks Just didnt know if there was an interest for it or not
