Step 1

In a wide non stick pan, add the sliced onions and the olive oil. Turn the heat high for the first few minutes then reduce to the lowest setting and caramalise for 35-40 minutes, sautéing every few minutes so as not to burn on one side.

Step 2

Wash the lentils and add to a pot along with the 5 cups of cold water

Step 3

Bring the lentils to the boil then reduce to medium heat while they cook

Step 4

After 20 minutes of the lentils cooking, check one and if it is nearly done, add the washed cup of rice

Step 5

Add the salt and spices, a quarter of the onions as well as any excess oil from the onions which should be nearly done by now.

Step 6

Cover the rice with a lid and cook for another 20 minutes on low. Taste and adjust the salt as necessary.

Serve with salad or yoghurt.
