Note:

  • Unlike other rice varieties, the consistency of this dish should be semisolid. Also it tends to be thicker with time. So let it be little running when you cook.
  • Do not overcook the vegetables.
  • Seasoning with ghee gives nice aroma to the dish, do not skip ghee.
  • You can add vegetables like double beans, capsicum and turnip too.
  • Rice to toor dal ratio as 1: 0.5, but you can make 1:1 too if you prefer.
  • Alternatively you can cook rice and toor dal along with vegetables. In that case you should continue adding jaggery, tamarind and bisi bele bath powder only after cooking rice and dal well.
