Comfort food is usually one which is a very simple meal without many masalas or which doesn’t involve long time in cooking it. This is a comfort food which i like to binge on when i have had too many eat outs. It is a simple meal which is best enjoyed when steaming hot with a dollop of Ghee.

1/4 cup Moong Dal
2 Garlic Cloves
Ghee 1 tbsp
Rai 1 tsp
Hing a big pinch
Haldi 1/4 tsp

Potatoes 2 medium ones

Wash rice nicely add water and salt and keep that bowl on top of the dal bowl in the cooker
Wash potaoes nicley and place it in the cooker.
I have a big cooker so i can pressure cook all 3 together. It is so much time saving as well.
Pressure cook the above for 3 whistles.
If u dont have a cooker you would have to cook all of them separately.
When cooker is cooled proceed further.
Transfer the cooked rice in a Hotcase so that the rice will remain hot.
Heat ghee in a vessel add rai,and hing.
Add haldi and the cooked dals along with salt.
Add water if the consistency is too thick.
Simmer for 5 mins and garnish with coriander leaves.
Peel and cut the potatoes into thick strips
Heat oil in a pan, add jeera and when it splutters add potatoes and salt and give a nice mix.
Cook them on a medium flame for another 5 mins by stirring between intervals for the potatoes to be roasted nicely.
Serve hot rice along with dal fry andd jeera aloo.
Dont forget to add a small dollop of ghee on rice.
A perfect meal 🙂
