    Pali's Favorites's Note:

    This is a really simple dish that is very satisfying, especially during Ramdan. My brothers never really got full off of just rice and beans, so I would always make fried chicken with this dish to fill their bellies :) Enjoy!

      Very simple! I used brown lentils also, so had to cook a bit longer. This is a nice change from plain lentils or plain rice, and was a nice side for grilled chicken. I will up the amount of cumin next time though, since we really love the flavor.

      Yummy and pretty easy!! I used brown lentils and cooked them longer than 7 minutes. I used mainly canola oil and some unrefined extra virgin olive oil on top. Served with Fried Chicken Emirati Style, yogurt and a fresh salad. I would most definitely make this dish again. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

      Wonderfully flavored rice dish - loved the addition of lentils to beef it up a bit. The water measurement worked great for me. I am interested in trying it out with chicken broth too, as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for sharing!
