Recipe Notes

1. Soaking Pulses and Rice separately and for different time helps in cooking them well as well as retaining the rice grain intact. If you soak both together and cook, the rice may get overcooked and will get mashed.

2. Cooking vegetables separately keeps it crunchy while eating otherwise if you cook it along with rice and daal that too will get overcooked and will get mashed.
