Mujaddara Arabic Lentil Rice Recipe | My Recipe Time "Enjoy a great tasting dish to share with family and friends. Special dish for vegetarians, and one of our favorite meals. Instead of placing the onion on top you can mix it along with the lentils and rice before serving. It makes a perfect meal with a fresh green salad. Also you can use 2 cups of vegetable broth instead of 2 cups of water to cook the lentils."

Mujaddara Arabic Lentil Rice


1 cup dry lentils, rinsed
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3/4 cup white rice, rinsed
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 white onions, sliced into 1/4-inch rings


Step 1
Combine the lentils, 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt, the cumin, and garlic powder in a pot over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook until the lentils begin to soften, 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 2
Stir the rice, 3/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt, and the olive oil into the lentils. Cover the pot and continue cooking until the lentils and rice are tender, about 40 minutes.

Step 3
Heat the cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onions in the oil until browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Spread the onions over the rice and lentil mixture to serve.
