A very comforting meal, best for lazy weekends 😉 when you just want to spend minimum time in the kitchen.. LOL 😀 I came across this recipe in “Sharmis passions” website, And developed an instant liking towards it. It’s quite filling, and it has some soothing comfort to this, Tastes great when had with potato wafers and pickles 🙂 or maybe you can even pair it with fish or chicken fry, Over all a very flavorful dish and am sure you’re gonna enjoy it 🙂


  • Rice – 1 cup
  • Toor Dhal – 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
  • Onion – 1 small
  • Tomato – 2 small
  • Garlic – 2 to 3 cloves chopped
  • Water – 3 cups
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Sambar powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp
  • Ghee – 3 tsp
  • Salt – to taste

To Temper:

  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard – 3/4 tsp
  • Red chillies – 2
  • Curry leaves – few


Clean the rice and set aside, Rinse the dal and let it soak for 30 mins.

Heat oil in a pressure cooker, Splutter the mustard seeds, Now add the curry leaves and red chillies.

Next, add the onions and saute till it is slightly golden brow. Add chopped garlic and saute for a minute, Add tomatoes and saute till its kinda mushy. Mix in the sambar and turmeric powders and toss well, Add the rice and dal with 3 cups of water and salt.

Pressure cook for about 3 whistles, Garnish with coriander leaves.

While serving, drizzle it with ghee and serve with some spicy potato wafers and pickles, tastes really yumm. !!

Note : This should be served immediately, as it gets dry soon.
