Mujadarah: food for the masses

November 21, 2010 No Comments

This dish is Palestinian comfort food at its best.  It’s great for a big crowd.  I cooked it for two couchsurfers and a friend, and we finished every bite!

1 cup rice
1 cup brown lentils (soaked beforehand)
3 cups water
3 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
4 large onions
3 TBSP butter or olive oil

Pre-soak the lentils. Add rice and lentils with spices to 3 cups water. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until rice is cooked and lentils are soft.

While rice and lentils are cooking, brown sliced onions in butter or olive oil. Add this on top of the finished rice and lentils.

Serve with yogurt (plain) and a salad.
