Red Masoor Dal (Brown) Rice

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Saturday, October 23, 2010

Whenever i make mixed rice, i normally prepare rice separately and Mixing recipe Seperately. Never i have tried to make a One Pot Meal!!! When i came across this Red Masoor Dal Rice in DK's Blog, i thought of giving it a try. I have slightly modified the recipe,So, for the original recipe please follow the link above.
1 cup Brown Rice
1/2 cup Masoor Dal
1 Large Onion, chopped
1 Large Tomato, Chopped
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 green chillies, Slited Lengthwise
1 cardamom and bay leaf
21/2 cups of Thin coconut Milk /Veggie Stock/Water
1 tsp curry powder (Store bought, Mothers' recipes Brand)
Salt to taste
turmeric, hing a pinch
Fresh Coriander,for Garnishing

Soak Brown Rice for 30 Minutes. I soaked the Dal too for 5 minutes, washed and drained. In a Skillet, Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, , green chillies, cardamom and bay leaf. Add Onions, Ginger-garlic pate and saute till translucent. Add Tomatoes, sprinkle little water and add curry powder, turmeric and hing. Let the Tomatoes cook for a minute or two. 

Drain the excess wter from Rice. Add Rice and Dal to the cooked tomatoes, Add Coconut Milk. Now DK says it is Ok to replace this Magic ingredient with Veggie stock or Water. But, i would suggest you not miss this, it really brings out a flavor to the Rice, Trust me!!!! Add Salt and mix well. Cover and Cook  for 15-20 Minutes. Garnish with Fresh Coriander and Enjoy!!!!! I had it with some oven-fried appalams!!!! mmm, tasty, tasty, yummy, yummy!!!!
