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..
