I've never had mujadara before so I don't know what it's supposed to taste like, but I think it turned out pretty good. I used 2 onions and added cinnamon, cumin, salt and cayenne to them after they were cooked. I let the onions cook for closer to 20 minutes. I also used brown basmati rice instead. I used this recipe in addition to another recipe that had more detailed steps. It said to add the rice to the pan with the onions once they're done cooking and then add the cooked lentils, 3 cups of water and 1 1/2 tsp of salt. I also added a chicken flavored boost pack at this time. Then I covered it and let it simmer for 30 minutes. The yogurt was a must for me. I used nonfat plain greek yogurt. This was easy to make with little prep time and it travels well. I can take this to work for lunch for several days!
