Lentils rice

This was just an idea which combines 2 dishes I like very much and the result is equally tasty. Updated, found the name of this recipe to be mujaddara.


  • olive oil, 1 tbs ginger powder, 1/2 tbs safran powder
  • 1/5 tea cup (175 ml) rice
  • 1/5 tea cup (175 ml) red lentils
  • 3 cups of water


  • heat the oil with the ginger powder
  • add the lentils, rice and safran for 1-2 minutes
  • add the water
  • put in the oven for 15-20 minutes
  • when the water is gone then the dish is done
  • enjoy.

Note: unlike I was expecting the rice is softer at the end than the lentils so if this bothers you you should precook them for 3-4 minutes before.
