      I like it either way. I usually have it as a hot side or main, then have the leftovers as a cold lunch or cold side with lunch.

      It's rice and lentils - here's a recipe/description. http://alainamwood.blogspot.com/2009/...

        I've eaten this numerous times; I just didn't know the name.

        That's a new spelling for me. I learned it as mujardarrah. Oh, how I love the stuff on a really crappy winter day, when the house is all steamed up from the kitchen, and I'm tired, and hungry. I always eat mine hot, with harissa, and sometimes a smidge of sour cream. Talk about something being more than the sum of its parts.

          Hot or room temp but I've been know to eat it straight from the fridge.

            I typically eat it room temp because usually when I eat it I get it from the deli upstairs @ kalustyan's in NYC. They make a mean mujaddara sandwich! I sometimes it the sandwich cold later in the day after I've refrigerated it and it's still awesome!

              Thanks for the responses. The reason why I posted the question is because I was told that traditionally in the Mediterranean World, it is a cold dish.
