Ham brings a salty-sweet savoriness to this twist on the Arabic dish mujaddara, a mix of lentils, rice, and aromatics found throughout the Middle East. Serve with a fresh green salad.
We loved this dish, just as written. Whole cumin and coriander work out fine. It is delicious, and makes great warm up meals the next day.
I really want to make this. I rated 5 just to maintain the average rating as I'm not sure where to get clarification, but are the cumin and coriander really left whole in this dish? I can't see how biting into them would be pleasant.
I loved this dish! I didn't have the ham so I sprinkled with just a bit of warmed chopped salami instead. Was amazing!
This was really delicious. One night we heated up leftovers and topped each portion off with a fried egg. Yum! The spices were great. I thought the lentils were a little crunchy and will probably cook them longer next time before adding the rice. I will make this again.
