About this recipe: This is a perfect one-dish meal, cooked in a pressure cooker. I especially like it on a cold day when I feel like something to warm me up. Or when I have a sore throat and need something soothing.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 cup sabut moong dal (skin-on whole green lentil)
  • 2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin (jeera) seeds
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin
  • 1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, minced
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 green chillis, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin (jeera) powder
  • ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 7 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
