Black Lentils Curry

Today I am happy to share a guest post by Haffa from Haffa's Kitchen Adventures. When I first started blogging I used to do some guest posts and invited others to do guest posts too. Eventually I stopped the guest post series in my space and I completely forgot that I had asked Haffa for a guest post long long ago! So when she suddenly pinged me that she is ready with a post, I was pleasantly surprised and accepted her offer. 

Haffa is a wonderful person that I had the pleasure of meeting through blogging and she has some wonderful recipes in her space which I have bookmarked.
So let's move on to see what she has for us!
