If you are using pressure cooker, just transfer everthing to the cooker and keep the flame
low and cook for 10 –15 mins.
  • Serve hot with papadams/raitha.
  • I love to have with any pickle.

Note:
  1. You can any veggie of your choice.Generally we can add cabbage, turnip,potato.
  2. If you want to add ghee u can add it at the end .
  3. Sometimes i fry some cashew nuts in ghee and add to it.

  25. Hi

    I am doing my version today. The only difference is i am cooking the rice and Dal together. This the the traditional bangalore version. Instead of coconut we add copra, add sundaikkai roasted in ghee. It will add to the taste. Hope u like this version too.
