Mujaddara - Rice with Lentils - PAZ BY NATURE

Mujaddara – Rice with Lentils

My version to Mujaddara-

Mujaddara is a popular middle-eastern dish generally made using brown or green lentils and rice and topped with caramelized onions.

to make mujaddara I am using basmati rice and Puy lentils.

This is a super easy and highly nutritious dish!

Le Puy green lentil is a small, mottled, slate-gray/green lentil. This type of lentils may be grown and sold as French green lentils or Puy lentils.

Puy lentils are rich in iron and folate and an excellent source of protein.
