Check the lentils for doneness after about 15 minutes. As with all dried beans, the older they are, the longer they will take to cook. I have found cooking times often assume older goods.
Be sure to buy the small rosy brown lentils to make this dish. The usual green varieties are too soft and will not hold up.
