Recipe Disaster

Hi (again) everyone.

First, thanks so much for your comments about whether or not there should be cloves in the Lentils and Rice dish from Vcon - I greatly appreciated them!

Second, and here's the issue, I made the recipe last night and it was a disaster. I did not add cloves, but I'm thinking that wasn't the problem. I followed the recipe closely, but by the time I was supposed to add the lentils, nearly all of the water was already gone. So, I added a bit more water. By the time my dinner was "done," I had completely obliterated rice (having absorbed all the water it needed and then some) and fairly crunchy lentils. Textural issues aside, I also found that it had little flavor (likely the result of me adding more water).

I'm certain I did something wrong - anyone have any tips for this recipe. I'm a competent cook, I just have never made this before, so I have no ideas.

Thanks so much! :)
