Put lentils in a large pot with 3 cups of water per cup of lentils and bring to the boil. Meanwhile peel and roughly chop the garlic and ginger and put it in with the lentils. Put in all the spices as soon as you can. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 mins or until the lentils are soft enough for your liking. If it starts getting too dry add some more water. Stir it round a bit every now and then.

About 15 mins before the end of the lentil cooking time start making the rice according to the instructions on the packet, usually 2 cups of water per cup of rice and some salt according to taste [brown rice takes much longer so change timings accordingly]. When everything is cooked mix it all together.

Variations: 1/. Use 10 or 12 bean soup mix instead of lentils 2/. Microwave some frozen chopped spinach after you have started the rice and mix this in when the rest is all cooked (1 packet to every 2 cups of lentils) . 3/. I haven't tried this yet but I guess you could mix in some TVP at the beginning of the cooking process.
