East Indian Rice & Lentils

  • 2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Yellow Onion medium sized, peeled & minced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled & minced
  • 2-1/2 cups Vegetable Broth or Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 cup Basmati White Rice uncooked
  • 3/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Curry Powder
  • 1 pinch Chili Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup Red Lentils washed & sorted

Directions

Simmer lentils, garlic and onion in broth in a covered, heavy saucepan for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add rice, salt, curry powder and chili powder, cover and simmer for 20 minutes until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed. Uncover and cook 2 - 3 minutes to dry out.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a small skillet over moderate low heat, add cumin seeds and stir fry 1/2 minute until they become fragrant and turn 1 or 2 shades darker. Pour over rice/ lentil mixture and toss with a fork. Taste for salt and adjust as needed.

Makes 4 servings.
