3. Drain and add soaked burghul to onions in the pan, add ginger and gently sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add spices, reserved stock from lentils and gently stir on medium low heat for 2 minutes.

4. Gently fold in the 3/4 cooked lentils and chopped dates, allow to cook on low heat until all liquid is absorbed.

5. Serve in a large platter, garnishing with fried onions and chopped parsley.
