METHOD:

Wash and cook the rice. Once done, spread it on a plate and mix 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. This will ensure that the rice does not stick to each other.

In a frying pan, heat oil. Then add mustard seeds and urad dal to it. Saute till the urad dal turns golden brown and mustard seeds splutter.
