a very easy recipe.
Lentils and rice
1 large onion chopped
1 cup brown lentil, washed
2 cup basmati rice, washed
2 Tbl sp veg. oil
ground black pepper
some curry poweder (optional)
boil the the lentils for 30-45 minutes in about 4 cups of water
remove excess water
fry chopped onions in veg oil for 3-5 min, until golden
add salt, pepper and all spice (and curry spice if you would like)
add the lentils and stir for 10 min
add the washed rice and enough water to cover the surface of the mixture by 1 inch

use a heavy bottom pot or a non stick pot for this. if you don't have that, raise the pot
