Add the lentil, rice, garlic, cumin and salt to a pan
Add 3-4 cups of water. The amount of water will depend on the kind of rice you use. You need a texture bordering on a mushy texture. I used 3 cups for "hand pound" rice.
Place it inside a pressure cooker (with water in the bottom)
and cook it for about 10-12 minutes for about 4-5 whistles.
Switch off and let the pressure settle down. On opening, this is how it looked like.
Add the coconut to it.
Heat a skillet and add Ghee. When hot, add the asafoetida and curry leaves to it. When aromatic, switch off the flame
and add that to the lentil rice mixture.
Give it a good mix until combined.
