Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
March 24, 2008

The recipe didn't state how many cups of water you need to cook the rice and lentil together. For some who are not so used to cooking or eating with rice, the recipe should indicate it clearly. Yes, I agree with other viewers, you need to add cumin and cinnamon which in the original Egyptian mujadarrah dish calls for, the amount depending on your taste and liking, because some doesn't like the smell of the cumin. Adding these spices would make a big difference. And of course, yogurt and greek salad really goes well with this dish. My husband is an Arab and he always make this dish and it's a family favorite.
