    Very satisfying. The cucumber relish and the Greek yogurt pair nicely with the spiced lentils and brown rice. I was surprised by the mild flavor of the spices and might try adding more next time. I used brown lentils, which remained pretty toothsome. I will try using red or yellow lentils next time to see if I like it better when the lentils are mushy.
