Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add oil to medium size pot, fry onion until soft.
  2. Add chopped tomato, carrot, tomato paste and garlic and stir until a bit soft, about 8 minutes or so on low heat.
  3. Add dry spices to bring out their flavors and aroma.
  4. Add rice and lentils, cover with water just a bit over the rice, approximately 2-1/2 cups or so, bring to boil, cover and simmer for approximately 40 minutes checking periodically to see if tender.
  5. NOTE: The lentils may seem a bit tough even after cooking, but leave covered for about 15 minutes and before serving they will be fine.
  6. Great next to chicken or a great vegetarian meal all by itself!
