Rice and Lentil Majadara

this simple and filling dish is great as a side dish, or on its own.

2 cups long-grain white rice
3-4 medium onions, chopped
500 grams green lentils
4 cups of boiling water
sweet paprika
vegetable oil

A large pot

1. heat oil in the pot and fry the onions until soft.
2. add the paprika and cumin, then stir.
3. add the lentils (i use frozen, pre-cooked lentils. if using dry lentils, soak them overnight)
4. add the rice, and do not stir!
5. add 4 cups of boiling water, and cover the pot
6. let cook until all the water is absorbed (15-20) minutes
7. stir and serve with a dollop of plain yoghurt
