The recipe is from the book the Soviet era "Moldavian cuisine". Unfortunately, I can't tell neither name of author nor the year of publication cover was lost even before the book fell into my grasping hands. This recipe is listed there as "potato Moussaka with lentils". Oh, there is an indescribable charm in these Soviet cookbooks and recipes from there.
