Moong Dhal Rice

1/2 cup rice
1 cup moong dhal(green)
2 onoins finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
2 spoons of ginger garlic and green chilly paste
1 spoon turmeric
1 spoon amchur powder
2 spoons oil
salt as per taste.

Soak rice in water and keep aside for 5- 10 mins.
Add oil to pan once it heats up add onion, when they turn transparent add tomato.
Once tomato softens add ginger garlic and green chilly paste and mix well till raw smell goes.
Now add moong dhal soaked in water for 5-10 mins and roast.
Add the soaked rice, turmeric amchur powder and salt and mix well.
Add 2-3 glasses of water and once it starts to boil transfer the mixture to a cooker and cook for 2 whistles.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any raita of your choice.
Alternatively moong dhal rice can be cooked in a pan by closing the lid, but it is time consuming.
