When it comes to Solo Cooking! I am King(okay queen)! I don’t know I like the fact of solo cooking…unlike my friends! I could toss anything in minutes. I also do some elaborte cooking during weakends! But sometimes…..if I am bored to cook, no friends coming over to visit me and its pouring(raining)outside….this is my comfort and favorite food!
Basmati rice 200 gms
Split green gram 200 gms (moong dal without skin/pasi paruppu in Tamil/Split lentils)
Fenugreek seeds 3 spoons

Or tie all the spices ina small muslin cloth/baggie except fenugreek seeds. Drop this muslin bag while frying….instead of adding spices as such.(so that you can remove your spices after cooking)
3. When they are almost fried add slitted green chilies and allow it to crack.
4. Now add thinly sliced onions and fry them till golden brown.
5. Add remaining ginger-garlic paste and fry for a while….till its raw smell goes away.
6. Now add finely chopped mint, coriander leaves, tomato chunks. Fry them until they lose their water content and oil shows up on top.
7. Add marinated meat and toss it for a while till meat turns pale. Then add rice plus moong dal/split lentils.
8. Add salt, chili and garam masala powders. Then add excess of water and pressure cook it over medium heat.
9. Once the kanji/soup is ready garnish it with coriander leaves.
10. If you did had the spices in muslin cloth…..remove it, before serving.
