Panchmel Kichadi - Healthy one pot meal with rice and dals - simple lunch recipe

My kids love one pot meals. Sunday is always time for one pot meal. My kids liked Wholesome Kichadi that I have posted before. That recipe I have posted is using rice cooker. This time I wanted to try something using pressure pan. But this can be done in rice cooker too. I have used urad dhal with skin also whole green moong dal. If you want you can replace that with urad dhal without skin and split yellow dhal (moong dal).
