Wash rice and lentils together 2-3 times in water.Soak for 15-30 minutes.
Instant Pot Method
Set the SAUTE MODE of Instant Pot on on high for 5 mins.
Add ghee to it. Once the display shows HOT, add cumin seeds. Once the seeds crackle, add turmeric powder.
Drain water from rice and lentil mix, add add to the inner pot, mix and saute for a minute.
Add water around 3 cups and Cancel the SAUTE Mode.
Cover and seal the lid, and set the PRESSURE COOKER Mode on High for 8 minutes.
Once the timer goes off, let it go on warm mode, if your are planning to have it after some time. Else, release Pressure using QRP after 2-3 minutes. Check for the doneness of grains and have it warm with a spoonful of ghee!!
Pressure Cook Method
In Pressure Cooker, add ghee, keep it on medium flame, add cumin seeds once ghee is hot.
When seeds crackle, add turmeric , rice and lentil mix, saute for a minute then add water(3 cups), cover and cook on medium flame for 3-4 whistles. Let the pressure go naturally.
I use Basmati Rice for Cooking. You can use any rice(Broken , Jasmine, Sona Masoori).
