Mujadarra (Lentils with Rice)
January 12, 2016

This is tasty. I made a few minor tweaks. I had a 16 oz bag of French lentils so adjusted volumes accordingly. I added the spices to the onions and cooked till fragrant and added the garlic after and only cooked till soft (I was afraid it would overcook if I added it with the onions). I used white basmati rice. I liked this very much. Next time I will saute the carrots with the onions as they were a little mushy for my taste. I used the water I cooked my lentils in to keep the mixture from drying out. In order to do this quickly, I started my lentils and after ~5 minutes I started the rice. After the first 10 minutes of cooking the lentils, I started sauteeing the onions so when the lentils were done, it was all ready to combine and then serve.
