saag lentils


1 jar (approx. 300g) Rupen's Spinach Curry (SAAG) sauce
1 cup orange lentils
1 cup white short grain rice
4 cups hot water
1 cup frozen green peas



In a large pot, combine the Rupen's Spinach Curry sauce, orange lentils, white short grain rice, and hot water.
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a lid, and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
After 20 minutes, check the lentils and rice for tenderness. If they are cooked through and the consistency is to your liking, proceed to the next step. If not, continue to simmer for a few more minutes until done.
Once the lentils and rice are cooked, add the frozen green peas to the pot.
Stir the mixture well to incorporate the green peas and let them cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until heated through.
Once everything is heated and well combined, remove the pot from the heat.
