Brown Rice Huggi

I prepared Huggi and Godda saaru. This receipe is given by my friend Meghana as her mom is visiting here she prepared huggi using brown rice. I tried this receipe it came out excellent. Its healthy as it is prepared with brown rice and Moong daal instead of white rice. Brown rice excellent source of fiber and very chewy. Godda saar is good for indigestion,feels refreshing and goes well with Huggi.
1 cup brown rice( soak for atleast 3 hours in hot water as it takes time to cook)
1/2 cup yellow moong daal (Soak for 45 mins)
2 tbsp Coriander seeds
1 tbsp Cumin seeds
4-6 tbsp dry coconut powder(I used fresh chopped coconut)
2 Dry red chillies
1-2 tsp turmeric powder
1-2 bay leaves
Cashew Nuts (Optional)
2 -3 tbsp oil
1 tbsp Ghee(optional)
Salt to taste
Put 1tbsp oil in Kadai and add cumin seeds, coriander seed ,coconut powder and red chilli. Fry for 2-3 minutes until it turns to golden brown. Cool down the mixture for 5-10 minutes and Grind it to fine powder.In pressure cooker put oil. Once the oil is hot add bay leaf, ground powder,and turmeric powder. Add soaked rice and daal(remove water from rice and daal) and fry for 5 mins. Put
5 cups of water,salt and cahewnuts. Cover the lid and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles. Once the pressure is gone add ghee on top and garnish with cilantro. Have hot huggi with happala(papad) and pickels.
