Just made this tonight for dinner on a frigid cold night, and it was the ultimate comfort food. So delicious! My entire family loved it. Spice blend was perfect, I did cut down the red pepper flakes to 1/4 tsp. as my husband doesn’t like things too spicy hot. Used brown basmati rice so adjusted cooking time to 8 minutes. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
Wow. Simply wow!
This a lovely, earthy dish. Nice texture although i left it on warm 45 minutes. We enjoyed the fragrant oil topping as well but i did not have cumin seeds and my dried peppers were maybe not small/hot enough. Overall I might find a way to add a bit more heat next time.
Simple, delicious and filling in the most perfectly comforting way. Made it with basmati the first time, and brown rice the second. Both times it came out perfectly with directions followed as described.
So good! Very comforting. I actually didn’t have potatoes or cumin, so I substituted extra cauliflower and curry powder. I also doubled the other spices. The lime topping at the end + cilantro really adds to the flavor. Will be making this again.
The flavours are complex and delicious in this! I used brown rice and followed a previous reviewer’s suggestion to cook for 8 min but this was a bit too long.. My rice grains were mushy. Not a huge problem as it’s a kichuri after all but next time I’ll try 6min. I used the indicated spices and found it perfect, though perhaps I could handle it a bit spicier. If you aren’t into spicy heat, adjust down of course. The ghee and lime juice make this dish next level.
Great flavors, but mushy. The texture was like mashed pototoes, and the lentils were completely “gone.” But the flavors were spot on so, I’ll try again, just won’t cook as long.
Awesome flavours! Great success with our guests. Delicious.
My tips: I followed earlier advises and reduced cooking time: 3mn low pressure and 6mn release. Still somewhat slightly overcooked but rice was just cooked…so may be right on timing or maybe short it by one minute less…
My variants: added additional amounts of spices. Some ginger powder (in addition to fresh ginger) and added one sweet potatoe
Will make it again
