Turkish Lentil Rice


My first impression for this recipe was during Iftar, I had this in the mosque for the very first time, it was packed with full of flavours, although it contains very simple and less ingredients. I immediately asked my friend about this recipe, she said it's just rice and pasta( risi). I seriously have know idea where does the flavour for this rice comes from, but I simply love it.
Serves 4
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
Turkish white rice or parboiled rice- 2 cups
Brown Lentils- 1/2 cup
Risi- 3 tbsp( a types of pasta, looks slightly bigger than rice)
Butter- 1 tbsp
Salt as required
Method:
Cook the lentils until they are just cooked, don't let them change their shape or get mashed. Heat the butter in a pan, add the risi and fry until are light brown in colour. Add the washed rice, lentils and the pasta in a rice cooker along with salt and water. Cook until the rice is done.
Serve the rice with green chicken curry or any curry of your choice along with salad.

This recipe goes to Kids Lunch Box Treat by Taste Buds, Just another meatless monday and Any One Can Cook.
