Wash the lentil and rice two to three times, draining off the water and keep it aside. Now take a vessel and add the clarified butter (ghee) to it. After the butter starts heating add the cumin seeds, pepper corns, onions and chillies for about 2-3 minutes and then add the diced potatoes along with the rice and lentils. Add in the turmeric powder and mix well. Now put in water as per requirement (generally 1 : 1.5 proportion of rice) Let this cook for 15-20 minutes till the rice is cooked. Do not overcook the rice but make a wet and soft gravy which is smooth and a bit watery.
