DIRECTIONS

  • In a large heavy-based saucepan, heat over medium heat.
  • Add onion slices, and sauté until softened and deep golden brown.
  • Remove half the onions and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add turmeric, cumin, coriander, cloves, mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • Add salt, and season with black pepper to taste.
  • Combine lentils and rice in a fine-meshed sieve, and rinse well with cold water.
  • Drain, then add to pan.
  • Add 4 cups water, raise heat, and bring to a boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat to very low, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Water should be completely absorbed; if not, remove pan from heat, remove lid and cover pan with a kitchen towel, then replace lid and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • To serve, fluff pilaf with a fork, and transfer to a serving bowl.
  • Garnish with reserved onions.
