Mjadarra w roz (Brown Lentils with Rice)

1 cup brown lentils
3/4 cup white rice
3-4 medium sized onions
1/4 - 1/2 cup oil

1. Rinse lentils a couple times and drain
2. Place in a pot and add 3 1/2 cups of water and 1 tsp salt
3. Bring to a boil and lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-25 min until lentils are tender
4. Pour lentils into a strainer to drain and set aside on top of a bowl. Water may have evaporated from pot so this step may not be necessary
5. While lentils are cooking, cook rice like you normally would. Make sure to add 1 tsp salt
6. Next step is to cook the onions, you can cook them while lentils and rice are cooking or do it after
7. Slice onions into wing shaped wedges
8. Heat pan on medium heat and add oil
9. Once oil is hot add onions and cook until tender and golden brown. Will take about 10-15 min. Be careful not to burn onions. Add 1 tsp salt to onions while cooking and make sure to stir onions every few minutes.
10. Drain onions from oil and set aside
11. Mix the cooked lentils with the rice. Taste and add salt if needed
12. Add onions onto mixture and mix all together
