Mujadara Makbousa/ Mujadara Makhboussa, a hearty, creamy and nutrient slow cooked mujadara that makes a sort of a thick porridge rather than a dry pilaf. In Lebanon we have different variations of mujadara. This recipe needs long cooking time, because our goal is to cook the lentils and rice until they are superbly tender and a bit mushy. Makboussa in Arabic translates to mushy – mujadara makboussa has that creamy texture! Happy Eating!!
