Usili - Exotic Tiffin made with Rice and Lentils

I wonder how I forgot this simple yet deliciously different tiffin for so long. I am sure this is going to be regular at my home from now on ;)

Raw Rice - 1 cup
Moong Dal - 1/4 cup
Water - 4 cups

To Temper:-
Oil - 1 sp
Mustard - 1 sp
Hing - A pinch
Red Chilli - 3-4
Urad dal - 1 sp
Channa dal - 1 sp
Curry Leaves - few

Heat a tava. Once very hot, fry the raw rice couple of minutes till the color changes.
Switch off and just add the moong dal onto the rice. Set aside.
Boil 4 cups of water in a pan.
Temper the mentioned ingredients and add to boiling water.
Now add the Rice and dal to the boiling water, add salt, cook closed till done.
Serve hot with chutney.
