I just created a fantastic lentil dish this evening. We loved it. Shastya loved watching me make this dinner, and of course she wanted some of the rice. 

Lentil Pilaf:

1 TB Oil

1 Cup Basmati Rice
1 Cup Lentils/ Masoor Dahl
4 Cups Water

15 Cardamom Pods
20 Black Peppercorns
1 Tsp. Coriander
2 Tsp. Mustard Seeds
2 Tsp. Tumeric
2 Tsp. Minced Garlic

1. Bring 1st set of ingredients to a boil. Cover and cook for 15 min. on low heat.
2. Heat 2nd set of ingredients/ spices while 1st set cooks.
3. Remove 1st set of ingredients from heat when 15 min. cooking time is complete. 
4. Stir 2nd set of ingredients into 1st set of ingredients. Cover and let sit 5 min.  Enjoy:)
