We all know how to make dal. In our family, plain cooked dal is used extensively in sambar and rasam. Sometimes we make as a side dish for rotis. I have never made a one pot meal like Dal kichdi before. I came across this recipe from Sunshinemom's blog. It is the simplest and bestest comfort food.
Mung dal-1/4 cup
Thur dal-1/4 cup
Rice-3/4th cup or 1 cup uncooked
Coriander leaves chopped-1 tsp
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
Thinly sliced garlic-1 pod
Thinly sliced onion-1/4 cup
Curry leaves- a few
Cook rice and set aside.
Pressure cook both the dals together with turmeric and enough water till done.
Do the tampering till onions turn crisp and golden brown.
To the cooked rice, add salt, hing and cooked dhals. The mixture might be very thick. Add little water and bring it to desired consistency. Add the tampered ingredients and garnish with coriander leaves.
