This simple middle Eastern dish, known as mujaddara or jadarah is made with rice, caramelised onions and green lentils.
Very nice recipe, combining everything I like in one: lentils are always a nice change from other beans and legumes; as a Barbadian-American, rice is a staple in our menu -- Basmati's popcorn-like flavor is just an added boost; and caramelized onions (the miracle vegetable!) are fabulous! We'll be making this one again. (Didn't have Basmati rice the first two times I made this; used jasmine the first time and good old Uncle Ben's converted long-grain the second time. Both worked exceptionally well!) - 13 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I guess I must have done something wrong. My basmati NEVER turned white and it was crunchy..not good at all. I had to put Pink Himalayan Salt and Garlic to have any taste. - 08 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
