Green Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Jujadarrah) 9/10 November 15 2009




* 3 tablespoons olive oil                            45

* 1/2 large white onion, sliced into rings

* 2/3 cup uncooked green lentils                               120G

* 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons uncooked long-grain white rice      70G

* salt and pepper to taste

* 2 tablespoons plain yogurt or sour cream (optional)                30ML



This recipe’s Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 4 Servings.


1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook about 10 minutes, until browned. Remove from heat, and set aside.

2. Place lentils in a medium saucepan with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 minutes.

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.



I just added a little bit of salt. It tasted simple and was very simple to make. I didn’t like it with yogurt. I just liked the onion fragrance and the texture and taste from the green lentils in combination with the rice. Mixing it with rice gave the texture a flufiness which was good.
