Originally an Anglo-Indian recipe, this is a very light and healthy dish, which can be given to children as well as patients. It is a simple rice and dal recipe, cooked together till both rice and dal are overcooked and soft. Some chicken mince has been added for some extra flavor. You may add whatever vegetable you like as well.
- Gobindabhog / Fragrant rice – 1 handful
- Musur dal – 1 tbsp
- Mug dal – 1 tbsp
- Chicken mince – 2 tbsp
- Chopped vegetable – 2 tbsp
- Butter – 1 tbsp
- Salt and sugar as per taste
Wash the rice and dal, and soak for half an hour. Take a microoven proof bowl and add the butter. Micro for 30 seconds. Next add all the ingredients and a cup of water to the bowl. I have used a pinch of turmeric to give it a nice color.
Put the bowl covered into your microwave oven and cook on 100% for 6 minutes. Stir and cook for 3 more minutes or check for doneness. Finally reduce the power to 75% and cook for 4 more minutes. Keep inside the mocrowave oven for 10 more minutes then serve.
