Instructions
  1. Wash the dal and rice and add it to a pressure cooker. Add in 5 cups of water and cook for 5 whistles. Remove from stove and wait for the pressure to release.
  2. Add a cup of hot water and mix well to loosen the rice dal mixture a little bit. Adding hot water at this stage makes the rice very creamy. Set aside.
  3. Heat Ghee in a pan and add in the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Let it pop. Add in the cashewnuts and peanuts. Fry till the nuts are brown.
  4. Add in the tamarind paste and jaggery. Add in a cup of water. Add in the Bisi Bele Bath powder and the salt. Let it come to a boil. Let it boil for 3-4 minutes to cook the tamarind and the masalas.
  5. Add in the cooked rice dal mixture. Mix well and let it simmer for a couple of minutes on the stove. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Serve hot with a good teaspoon of ghee for each serving.
