Recipe Ingredients for Muhjadarrah

1 cup rice
1 large onion, sliced thin
6 T olive oil
1 1/4 cup lentils

Recipe Directions for Muhjadarrah

  1. Heat all the oil in a frying pan or wok. Add onion, and cook over a medium heat, until it is a very deep, chocolate brown. Be patient, this is important. You want your onions very dark, but not at all black-like a roux for a gumbo.

  2. While you are doing that, put the lentils in a big heavy pot with a quart of water, and some salt. Bring to a boil, and simmer 15 minutes.

  3. Add the rice and quite a bit of freshly ground pepper. If the water is not enough to barely cover, add a bit more.

  4. Cover and cook on low until the rice is done, 15-20 minutes.

  5. Stir in half the onions with a fork. Turn off heat, cover, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

  6. Adjust salt and add a bunch of freshly grated black pepper.

  7. Spoon into a serving bowl, and top with the rest of the onions and oil.
