Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
January 11, 2008

I rated this a 4 as a compromise. I would have rated it a 5, but my husband said he would have given it a 3 (He isn't very familiar with lentils - not that there was a problem with the taste. Because it tasted great!). I made a few slight alterations: I made it with 3 onions instead of 1, and I sliced them into half-rings before getting them good and browned, and I added 1 TBS cumin and 1&1/2 tsp garam masala to the lentils. Everything else I left the same. The house smelled wonderful while cooking and the leftovers were great the next day - even my toddler enjoyed it. Don't skip the yogurt, since the yogurt's tang definitely pulls the flavors together. I'll definitely make this again.
