Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Malabar
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 cup broken moong dal (also called kichadi parippu)
  • 1 cup Raw rice or Basmati rice
  • 100 gm jaggery, melted in little water (add more if you want it sweeter)
  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut milk
  • 1½ cups (300 ml) milk (you can also make it 1 cup milk and ½ cup water)
  • 5 tbsp grated coconut
  • A pinch of salt
  • Ghee for serving
  1. Wash the rice and dal well till water runs clear.
  2. Soak the rice-dal in water for around 30 minutes. This is actually not compulsory, but really shortens the cooking time.
  3. Drain off the soaking water and add along with the rest of the ingredients in a pressure cooker.
  4. Close the lid and cook up to 3 whistles, then reduce the flame to minimum and cook for around 15 minutes.
  5. Switch off the flame and allow the pressure to go by itself.
  6. Open the lid of the pressure cooker, mix all well and serve with a dollop of pure ghee!!!
