Lentils with Rice - Mujadarah

2:47 PM

This was a really nice surprise and I think the fried onions are what make this dish. Pali's favorites introduced me to it and I tried it during the Ramadan.

1 cup lentils
2 cups rice
2 large onions
3 cups water
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup oil
salt and pepper
1 cube chicken stock

 Combine lentils, water, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 7 minutes or until lentils are half cooked.
Add rice,chicken cube and cumin. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is tender.  Quarter and slive peeled onions. Fry in oil until dark brown.
Drain the onions and reserve. Pour the cooked oil over the mujadarah. Mix well.
Garnish with the onions.
