Grind together 1 tbsp of mustard seeds, 1 red chilly and asafoetida(optional) and keep aside.
Mix together the pressure cook dal-rice mixture with the sauteed masala.
Add the ground mixture to the above and mix well.
:- Rice should not be sticky. Adjust the water as per your rice quality. Sometimes, rice may need little/more water for cooking. For better results, add few drops of lemon juice or oil to the rice while cooking.
:- Add as much curry leaves for better flavour.
:- This can be stored in a refrigerator for 1 week.
:- I use exact measures of the ingredients as mentioned above everytime. Please adjust the chillies and salt as per your taste.
