1. Cook rice. Heat ghee in a cooker on medium to high flame. Put red chilli powder, turmeric powder and pulao masala in cooker and roast spices well.
2. Put chana daal in roasted spices and shallow fry daal for 3-4 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water and cinnamon sticks also. Pressure cook it for 10-15 minutes( Daal should not be soft, it should be grainy but able to chew ). So you don't have to cook daal for long as you generally cook it.
3. Now open the cooker and add the rice to cooked daal and mix well. Chana daal pulao is ready to serve.
