Instructions
  1. In a pan, add all ingredients of the rice, mix well, and set aside.
  2. Add ghee to a pan. Once this ghee starts to shimmer indicating that it is hot, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds. These seeds will sputter within 10-15 seconds.
  3. Add the ginger and garlic and sauté for 10 seconds.
  4. Add onions, tomatoes, turmeric, and salt, and stir until well mixed.
  5. Pour in toor dal and water and scrape well to ensure nothing has stuck to the bottom.
  6. Place the tall steamer rack inside this liner (on top of the dal basically). Place the pan of rice on the steamer. It is not necessary to cover the rice.
  7. Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes, and allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes. Then release all remaining pressure.
  8. Using little silicone mitts, carefully remove the rice, as well as the steamer rack. Check the consistency of the dal. You want a thick mixture akin to porridge.
  9. Serve each bowl with rice and dal, and pass around some extra ghee!
