Adas Rishta


2 finely chopped garlic cloves

1 large chopped onion

1 large thinly sliced onion

1 large potato

1 large onion, sliced

6-7 tbsp  extra  virgin olive oil

100g brown lentils

1 cup pasta

salt and black pepper

large handful of chopped flat-leaf parsley



Heat Vegetable Oil in a large soup pot and sauté sliced Onions until golden, remove from pot and set aside for garnish.

Add chopped Onions and garlic sauté for 5 minutes until soft,

Rinse the lentils and boil them in plenty of water until they are only just tender.

Break the potato into pieces and drop them into the pan with the lentils - there should be enough water to cover them. Add salt, stir and boil vigorously until the pasta is cooked al dente.

Drain quickly, and toss gently with the remaining olive oil, a little salt and pepper, the fried onions and the parsley.
