    Sudika's Note:

    This is a popular dish in North India, and is quick, easy and fuss free. Everyone has their own way of doing it, and this is the way i do it. When i am exhausted and too tired to do much else, i make this dish. Other people use a lesser amont of lentil to rice, but i use a 50/50 cos thats the way my husband likes it, moist. Some people prefer it drier. The choice is yours. You can also vary the type of rice and split lentil you use, but then cooking times will vary.

      This was such an awesome dinner! I didn't have a pressure cooker, so I just chucked everything but the ghee into the crock pot; and I can't get asafetida powder here in rural WV, so I used garlic powder. I followed the recipe otherwise. I loved the subtle spicing, and the cinnamon made the whole house smell delicious! Great recipe.

      Looks very similar to the way my Ma makes this, although I am pretty sure she puts in some garlic, ginger, and one or two crushed elaichi. Also I use 2 parts yellow dal to 1 part basmati rice, which is my preference. I use shortcut garlic-ginger paste to save even more time. This is real comfort food that my picky kids will actually eat. Looks good. I can't wait to try this!
