Wash the lentils and soak overnight in 4 cups of water, or two hours in warm water. Add salt, pepper, cumin and meat stock to the lentils
and bring to the boil. After about ten minutes add the rice or the Burghul and stir well. Bring to the boil again with the lid closed, then allow to cook for twenty minutes at a low heat without
stirring. Cut the onions into rings and fry them till they are crispy. Scatter them over the lentil dish and serve with yoghurt, tomato salad or tzaziki
