How to make it

  • Combine rice and lentils in a pot and rinse well.
  • Cover the mix with water. I learned this trick from one of Chinese students- put the third finger into the water and rice mix. When the water is at the level of the first knuckle, that's enough. It works every time.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and you can soak it or start cooking right away.
  • Bring to boil, cover and simmer for about 1 hour.
