The more common recipe uses rice. Bulgur can be substituted for rice, with the exact same procedure.

1. Fry the lentils in oil for 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously, until the first beans show signs of scorching.

2. Add salt, baharat, cumin, ground cardamom.

3. Add 2 cups water and cover. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed by the lentils.

4. Fry the rice in oil for 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously, until the grains change colour.

5. Add salt, black or white pepper, and ground cardamom.

6. Add 2 cups water and cover. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer. After 5 minutes turn the heat off, and leave standing for another 10 minutes.
