lentils and rice with fried onions (mujadarrah)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 1/3 cups uncooked green lentils
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or sour cream (optional)

  3. Stir rice and enough water to cover into the saucepan with the lentils. Season with salt and pepper. Cover saucepan, and continue to simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until rice and lentils are tender.
  4. Mix half the onions into the lentil mixture. Top with yogurt or sour cream and remaining onions to serve.
