Megadarra (Brown Lentils and Rice with Caramelized Onions)
Megadarra (me-ga-DAR-ra) is immensely popular in Egypt, as it is in the rest of the Arab world. (Elsewhere, the dish is pronounced mu-jah-DRA.) It's served either warm or at room temperature as a mezze, or appetizer, often accompanied by yogurt. Large quanities of dark caramelized onions are the best part.
