  5. Cook them in rice mode, once it is done, either release the pressure voluntarily or let it release naturally.

  • You may replace the coconut grated with coconut milk, but make sure you add the coconut milk after the rice is cooked. Do not cook the rice with coconut milk.
  • You may replace the broken black urad dal with whole black urad dal. I prefer the broken one as it will cook faster than the whole one.
