    Very good! The spice combination is very good. I used chana dal instead of white beans; it's all I had. Thank you for the recipe.  -  23 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! I added 1/4 cup of peanuts 5 minutes before it was done cooking to give it a bit of crunch and served it over brown rice. I left the cilantro off of my husband’s, and after tasting it, I added a sprinkle of fresh ground black pepper to mine. Otherwise no changes and we thought it had just the right combination and amounts of spices. It would also be good with some shredded chicken added.  -  04 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Added a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter and used yellow split peas in place of the beans since that's what I had. Nice soup  -  30 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
