Method : In a pressure cooker heat 6 cups of water (1200ml.).Put flame on high. Add all the spices to water.
Add everything including salt, ghee etc. When water comes to rolling boil add soaked dal-rice. And lower the heat to slow.





After adding everything just stir it once and close the lid properly.

 

Give 5 whistles on slow flame or simmer for 25 minutes.



Let the cooker cool itself, then open the lid.You can put more ghee as I have done or serve it as it is very soft.
.

Serve it with Gujarati kadhi It is an awesome combination.


Enjoy!!!
