Cooking green lentils takes slightly longer than rice. Therefore, it is necessary to precook them before mixing together with the rice.

Wash the green lentils, and place them in a pan with 3 cups of cold water, bay leaves, and cumin. Cover the pan, bring it to a boil, and simmer for 15 to 25 minutes.

While the lentils are cooking, heat a large heavy-based pan on medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the sliced onions

And sauté them for 15 to 20 minutes or until the onions are softened, got caramelized, and started crisping up slightly.

Remove the pan from the heat, add ¾ of the caramelized onions, and give them a stir. Remove the bay leaves, put the lid back on the pan, and cover it with a kitchen towel.

Let it rest for 10 minutes, top it with caramelized onions, and garnish with parsley before serving. Click on 👇 "learn more" for the full recipe.
