Pulses, lentils, and rice

Rinse the lentils and rice and let soak for 10 mins.

Sometimes it is better to rinse them separately (lentils first) then add to pot or rice cooker.
Bring to boil with 2X water, then turn heat to simmer, cover with a lid and cook for another 10-15 minutes till it is well cooked. Check occasionally with a fork or spoon.

if using rice cooker add 2X water, add some 1 tbsp butter and pinch of salt.
Eat with Yoghurt for simplest of meals.

Cooked and ready to eat dish (only the brown dal and rice). You can eat this with another stir fry dish (link) or eat it with an Indian spice powder like Curry leaf powder or Groundnut powder.

Alternately, you can fire up a skillet, add a tbsp oil, add cumin seed - let it sizzle, then add some chopped onions, then chopped carrots after 2-3 minutes and once these vegetables cook, season further with garam masala powder (2-3 teaspoon) and little salt, finally topping off with some kasoori methi or cilantro. You can add the rice and mix it up. and serve immediately.
