Dal Pulao

An easy,healthy at the same time a nutritious one pot meal to enjoy with some spicy potato fry..This pulao goes for an easy cooking process and this pulao tastes truly amazing and delicious..I cooked the rice and whole masoor dal together in pressure cooker and prepared a simple masala which i finally tossed gently with this cooked and dal rice, if u dont have masoor dal u can go very well with channa dal or toor dal...Since i dont wanted to make out as vegetable pulao i completely skipped the addition of veggies and prepared simply as a delicious quick pulao with dals and rice..This pulao goes prefectly a lunch box menu or for a pot luck party, a prefect feast for vegetarians..Sending this delicious rice to MLLA#30 guest hosted by Priya, event by Susan and to DNWS-D hosted by Akila..

Dal Pulao

2cups Basmati Rice
1cup Whole masoor dal or channadal
2nos Onion (chopped lengthwise)
2nos Tomatoes (big & juicy,chopped)
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cloves, cinnamon stick,cardamoms)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Garam masala 
Salt
Oil +1/2tsp Ghee
Few mint leaves
Few coriander leaves

Cook the rice and dal together with 5cups of water..keep aside and let the cooked rice and dal gets cool completely..Now heat enough oil, fry the whole spices until they turns brown, add the chopped onions, ginger garlic paste with salt until the onions transculent, now add the chopped tomatoes,slit opened green chillies, red chilly powder, garam masala and cook until the oil gets separates..Now add the rice and dal mixture and ghee gradually and toss gently until they get well mixed..
