Today , I am paired with Divya from Divya Z Easy recipes. She is a very good friend of mine.. I love her blog for her simple , easy and day to day recipes.. So for today I chose Nonbu Kanji from the hop.
Nonbu Kanji is a dish that we make during Ramadhan.. This is a must dish in our house for Iftar - when we break the fast in the evening. It is super combo with Masala Vadai. Or that's how I like it. :) Here is the recipe for you guys.. and more, this recipe is very customized to suit our healthy lifestyle.. for those who would prefer oil-free cooking. Well, It works for me every time I make this.. :)
Basmati Rice - 3/4 cup
Moon Dhal - 1/4 cup
Onion - 1 [small - chopped]
Tomato - 1 [small - chopped]
Carrot - 1 no.
Beans - 4-5 no.
Green Chilli - 1 no. [slit]
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Mint Leaves - a handful [1/4th bunch]
Coriander Leaves - for garnishing
Water - 4 cups
Salt - as required
- Throw all the ingredients into a pressure cooker.. and let it whistle 3 times or until the rice is all mashed up.
Tips & Tricks
1] After 3 whistles.. Check if the rice is mashed up.. if not try to do it urself or put 1/2 glass of extra water and let it whistle once again.
2] I generally add Carrots, Beans and Peas.. Have not tried anything else.
