    MasterZaar's Note:

    This is a great recipe to make in the winter - it is a hearty lentil stew, takes about an hour to make (no matter how much you increase the portions), and goes with most other foods. Also, it is really really easy to make, and can usually be made with things that you have in the house already. Can be served cold or hot, but it is much better hot than cold. This recipe comes from the Middle East.
