Strain brown lentils, pour boiling hot water, steep in it for 15 min, then strain.

Sauté the onion with garlic, ginger, the seeded and finely chopped chili pepper in butter until soft and lightly browned. Then add the cinnamon stick, cloves, bay leaf spice and turmeric and cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.

Then add the long-grain rice and all the lentils and pour in enough water to cover the cooked food to a height of 3 cm. Bring everything together to a boil and simmer on low heat for 20 min, lastly fold in the spring onions.

Remove the cinnamon stick before serving.

Tip: Instead of clarified butter, you can also use butter in most cases.
