Saute onions in olive oil until golden brown (not burnt or crisp). In a heavy 4 quart sauce pan, mix water, lentils and spices. Place on high heat and bring to a rolling boil. After 10 minutes, add onions and all the olive oil. Stir well. Stir in brown rice. Bring mixture back to rolling boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes or until all water is absorbed. Do not stir during this process and wait until the water is all absorbed. (mixture should be simi thick, not runny)
Top with plain yogurt.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a nutritional dish that is one of those Eastern staple foods that pack and travel well on your Camel while crossing the great Arabian deserts. It’s a good leftover served hot or cold. This is low in cholesterol, fat and calories. It is also high in fiber especially if brown rice is used.
