Majuddara Recipe


1 large onion, cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons vegetable olive oil
1/2 cup lentils, washed and soaked for 30 minutes
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cups water
1 1/2 cups Basmati rice

Fry the onions in oil until tender. Remove the onions and spread on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the extra oil.

To the oil, add the lentils, salt, 3 tablespoons olive oil and water. Bring to a boil with occasional stirring.

Add the rice, bring back to a boil and let boil until most of the water is absorbed.

Reduce the heat to low and let simmer 15 - 20 minutes or until rice and lentils are tender. Add more water if needed.

To serve, spoon rice mixture onto a large platter then sprinkle the fried onions on top of the rice. Sprinkle with a dash of salt.

Makes 4 to 6 servings
