Cooking Method:

2. Heat oil+ ghee . Add the whole garam masala , fry for a while. Add the chopped onion and fry until soft and translucent. Add the rice and daal . Add ginger paste and salt. Fry for couple of minutes stirring continuously. Now add 4 and half cup of hot water ( sincerice and daal together makes 3 cups, for each cup we have to take 1 and half cup of water). Cover the lid and cook on medium flame. Don’t Stir , otherwise you may end up having gooey type khichuri.

3. When the Water is almost dried out, add handful of green chili and stir only once with a light hand.Cover the lid and reduce the heat to very low. That is what we call “to keep on Dom” . But what I do , I place my pot over another pot filled with water and the steam doeas the “Dom” work. It works nice.

4. Garnish with bereshta ( fried onion) before you serve.
