Rice, lentils and caramelized onion. It’s such a simple recipe yet so delicious. This basic threesome is easily enriched with your favorite spices.
I added bulgur to the mix to add texture and used curcuma, garam masala and chili to spice it up. Serve with spiced yogurt and fresh herbs.
(use a lentil type that doesn’t fall apart during cooking and a coarse bulgur)
Spices: curcuma, chili, garam masala, coriander
Boil the rice and the lentils. Add hot bouillon with curcuma, garam masala and cumin to the bulgur and leave to soak for 10-15 min.
Make sure none of the ingredients are over cooked; it’s nicer when you have a bite.
Caramelize a big heap of onion and add curcuma, garam masala, cumin, salt/pepper, ground coriander when it’s almost done.
Mix everything together and taste if it needs some more seasoning, be generous with the spices.
Add fresh tarragon and spring onion.
Mix together: Greek yogurt, lemon juice, curcuma, chili powder, cumin, salt
