Eats - Spicy Lentils with Yogurt and Cinnamon Raisin Rice

The spicy lentils are from a recipe I've adapted from the Hot Spicy Lentils recipe in the Very Vegetarian Cookbook.
Spicy Lentils and Yogurt and Cinnamon Raisin Rice, Fresh Spinach, and Pitta with "Turkish Salad."
The recipe calls for 
3/4 cup red lentils (I did not have red lentils, I used plain ol' lentils)
4 tsp polyunsaturated oil (I used canola oil)
1 red onion (I used 3/4 of a white onion)
2 garlic cloves (I used 5)
1/4 tsp ground cumin (I used more like 1 tsp)
1/4 tsp ground coriander
(and I add a few tsp of curry powder as well)
1 red chile (I used 2 jalapeƱos)
3 3/4 cups vegetable broth
Juice and grated rind of 1 lime (I don't do this)
Ground black pepper

The recipe continues (and I follow most of these directions):
