    You would have to ask the recipe contributor that question. Click on the arrow after their name, then click "Contact this chef" from the drop down menu.

    Steamed rice is actually cooked in liquid, not over water, so I think the intention was to liken it to that. It seems like a long time to cook lentils, though, they cook pretty fast, unless they are old. It does depend upon the variety, though.

    To steam means not to touch boiling water. . . only steam which is a bit hotter depending how you do it.
    Like a steamed fish in a bamboo steamer
    This recipe will kill your lentils to the point that they are mush but can be salvaged in a "split pea" soup.

    You can (as i have just successfully done) steam them in a rice cooker with a steaming tray fitted in your machine. . .if you have one. It is much slower than a boil and then simmer but it gives you control as to how you want them to end up. . .al dente or you can go the whole hog and steam them for more than a few hours and end up with something (although i won't be responsible for it}.
