With 2 onions and 2 tomatoes available, I decided to make Dal Khichdi for lunch. But as I started cooking, thanks to my awesome cooking abilities, I ended up making Tomato Khichdi Rice, or something like that. Bottom line, it was yummy!!
2 Onions (diced), 2 Tomatoes (chopped), 1 cup rice (uncooked), 1 cup Toor Dal/Pigeon Pea, 1 packed Maggie Bhuna Masala (Green Packet), Coriander powder, Cumin powder, Chilli powder, Salt, Ghee/Clarified Butter, Cashew.
Mix the dal and rice, wash, and keep aside. Heat a pressure cooker and add some ghee. Add the cashews. Add the onions and fry them till they are golden brown. Add the tomatoes and cook the mixture for about 5 minutes, till the oil separates. Then add the Bhuna Masala (optional) and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the rice and dal, mix well. Add the cumin, coriander, chilli powder and salt to taste. Add 2 cups of water. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and let blow 5 whistles on medium flame. When done, garnish with cashew and chopped coriander.
