Here is yet another comfort food that can be made in a matter of minutes in a pressure cooker. Such one pot meals are always great when cooking for one. The husband has lunch at office and I need to find some inspiration to cook lunch for me. I tend to stay with one pot meals or easy fix lunches like sandwiches and soups. This is one such lunch I made for myself. I have used the split green moong dal for this recipe. This can be substituted with the yellow split moong dal or the whole green moong dal as well. if using whole green moong dal, make sure to soak it for an hour in advance before cooking it with the rice. Ingredients Rice - 1 cup ( I used sona masoori rice) Split green moong dal - 1/2 cup Tomato - 1/2 roughly chopped Salt to taste For the tempering Oil/ghee - 1 spoon Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon Garlic - 1 clove finely chopped Ginger - 1/2 inch - finely chopped Green chilly - 1 Curry leaves - 1 sprig Instructions Wash the rice and dal with water and drain the water. In a pressure cooker combine the rice, dal, tomato and salt and add about 3 to 3.5 cups of water. Pressure cook until you get 5 to 6 whistles. Once the pressure gets released, mash the rice and dal well with a potato masher or a wooden ladle. It should be very mushy. In a saucepan, do the tempering with the ghee, jeera, garlic, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves and pour it over the cooked rice and dal. Mix and serve it with pickle and papads.
