In this recipe lentils soften because they cook quickly than brown rice but lentils retain its shape. The proportion of lentils and rice can be altered as per taste. This dish is ‘spiced’ not spices, cinnamon, cloves and cumin give it a warm rich flavour but no heat.

Both brown rice and oatmeal are whole-grain foods that make up part of a healthy diet. They’re unrefined, meaning the fiber and nutrients haven’t been stripped away through processing. They also supply you with essential vitamins and minerals, such as B vitamins and Iron.
