    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak lentils in 2 cups water for 2 hours. Bring to a boil, then cook over low heat for 1/2 hour or until soft. Most of the water should be evaporated or absorbed. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Soak the rice in lightly salted water for 1/2 hour. Pour off nearly all the water. Put the rice in a pan with 3 cups boiling water. Cook the rice over moderate heat for 10 minutes (partly cooked).
    3. 3
      Drain and rinse rice under cold water. Drain and set aside.
    4. 4
      Put 2 tablespoons oil in a pan large enough to hold potato slices in a single layer.
    5. 5
      Add the broth, turmeric and coriander seeds and shake pan briskly to mix. Arrange the potato slices to fit the bottom of the pan.
    6. 6
      Mix the lentils and rice together and spread the mixture over the potato slices, but shape it into a pyramid.
    7. 7
      Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons oil over the rice. Cover the pan with paper towels, and place lid on top.
    9. 9
      Cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes more to develop a crisp crust.
    10. 10
      Serve warm.
    11. 11
      Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish.
    12. 12
      Variation: Omit coriander seeds and add 2/3 cup raisins to the lentil/rice mixture.
