Number of Servings: 4


    200g basmati rice, rinsed and drained
    1 tablespoon butter
    35g split dried chana dal, soaked for 8 hours
    ˝ teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    400ml water
    2 bay leaves
    1 cinnamon stick


Wash the chana dal and pick out any debris or dirt and drain well. In a saucepan, layer the rice then the chana dal. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and bring to the boil. Keep an eye on it so the rice doesn’t bubble over.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and the dal is cooked. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
