One morething, is it ok to fry moongdal and rice little bit vasanai varum varai, then pressure cook with milk then do the rest. 🙂
Yes you can do so. Even my mother in law do the same
How long do you pressurise rice and dal for this consistency?
Pressure cook for 5-6 whistles and later keep the flame very low and cook for 5-7 minutes
