Melt the ghee in a pan, add the onion, garlic, and celery and cook until soft for about 5 min.

Step 2

Add the other spices and cook until fragrant about 1 min. Add the rice and green lentils. Stir until the rice is translucent, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Pour the vegetable juice and vegetable stock into the saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over a low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked. They should be tender when pressed between fingers. Stir occasionally.
