  1. Bring brown rice and 3 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, 45 to 50 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Stir in the curry powder and red pepper flakes. Cook for a few seconds until fragrant. Pour in the remaining 3 cups of water, bouillon cube, and lentils. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are nearly tender, about 15 minutes. Make four shallow indentations in the cooked lentils with the back of a spoon, and crack a whole egg into each indentation. Recover, and continue cooking until the eggs have cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes for medium-well. Serve over the brown rice.

This is a pretty good meal! My family liked. I'd play with it a bit for a little more flavor, but I also omitted red pepper flakes and used chicken boullion. I'd like to add sauteed onion and g...

I think this is great. I was looking for a quick curry recipe where I didn't have to make the curry from scratch. It tastes great with chickpeas too.

I tried this recipe because I'm pregnant and I want to eat more lentils. My expectations were that it would be mediocre, but I ended up loving it! My husband, who thought he would hate it, ended...

Delicious, nutritious, easy, and cheap- can't get better than that. The only change I made was I used vegetable broth for the water and left out the bouillon. Thanks for sharing!

I make this quite frequently - once every week or two. I leave out the vegetable bullion and don't feel that the dish suffers at all because of this omission. It's a quick, easy, supper soluti...

Some major plusses for this dish include relative ease to prepare, health benefits and low cost. However, I just found it too bland. My husband said it was like eating gruel. That was a bit m...
