Majadra Druze – bulgur with black lentils

Vika Gorstain - Babayov
מג'דרה דרוזית

Majadra Druze is very similar to the normal Majadra that we know - just use rice instead of bulgur wheat. The taste is of course the most wonderful and suitable for the whole family. Druze majadra is a suitable supplement to large meals or can be used as dinner itself.
