Instant Pot Mujadra

I didn’t feel like taking a trip to the supermarket today so I rummaged around the pantry to see what I had on hand. Lentils, Basmati Rice, Spices, shallots, onion and lemon….it’s Instant Pot Mujadra! Since I was using white Basmati Rice, the recipe said to use less water, but I should’ve used the entire amount. Other than that, it turned out well! I also made Indian spiced Tofu so the entire meal was vegetarian.

I am currently reading this book by Alicia Mori called “Ikigai: The Japanese Philosophy to Improve Healt, Work and Relationship”.  It was the book that was part of the Kindle Unlimited.  I actually wanted to read the Hector Garcia book “Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life” but it wasn’t part of Kindle Unlmited.

I just started it tonight so I’m only a couple pages in.  It received a good rating on Amazon and I like these thought provoking, self improvement type of books.

Ikigai essentially means “What is your reason for being?”. 

What is your Ikigai?  Have you found yours yet?
