Making Mujadara Special

jennymoon | Jul 17, 2012 06:50 PM

I just made a HUGE batch of mujadara, which I love. I used Puy lentils, long-grain brown rice, and two large caramelized onions. I spiced it with small amounts of cumin and five spice powder. I made a cucumber mint yogurt sauce to accompany. Here are my questions:

1) What is the difference between cucumber raita and tzatziki?

2) How should I jazz up my leftovers?

3) How would you serve mujadara for a dinner party? I have done it once before with some great olives, homemade hummus, and pita. It's basically a peasant food - so how to make it seem fancy enough for a company dinner?

Thanks!
