Masoor spells iron shakti, which is very important to build hemoglobin levels and ward off fatigue and tiredness. Make this basic brown in advance to save on time and efforts. I have added apricots and raisins to the masoor masala to make it more interesting.
- Heat a pressure cooker on a medium flame and when hot, add the onions and dry roast on a medium flame till they turn brown in colour. Sprinkle 1 tbsp water if they start burning.
- Add the red paste and dry roast on a medium flame for a few more seconds while stirring continuously.
- Add the masoor, potatoes, tomatoes, apricots, raisins, salt and 1cup of water and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- If the masoor is watery, remove from the pressure cooker and simmer in a non-sick pan till little moisture evaporates and the mixture becomes semi-dry. Keep aside.
- Divide the brown rice into 2 equal portions and keep aside.
- Put the milk at the bottom of a glass baking tray and spread one portion of the brown rice in an even layer. Spread the masala masoor over it.
- Spread the remaining brown rice over the masala masoor in an even layer.
- Cover with an aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°c (400°f) for 10 minutes.
- Serve hot garnished with coriander.
