Mjeddrah, Hot or Cold?

Hi. How do you eat your Mjeddrah, hot or cold?

    1. 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.

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

      2. 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.

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

          1. 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.
