This is another recipe that has been lurking on the "things I want to cook" list for some time. It was the award winning lentil recipe over at Food 52. I just couldn’t resist all the wonderful flavours and textures. And lentils are such a comfort food for me whether a little dhal or my ultimate comfort food, a bowl of Mum's lentil soup. Mujaddra or megadarra or mejdra. It may not take the prettiest picture but it is bursting with flavour. Crisp, sweet caramelised onion, fluffy jasmine rice, comforting lentils all topped off with a spiced and minted yoghurt. The simplest of ingredients come together in this Middle Eastern dish to make something that is both exotic and fragrant. It is like a hearty, satisfying pilaf and was perfect for an Autumn Sunday evening.
