Soak rice for 10 minutes and cook with the rest of the ingredients in List 1 and 4 cups of water. Spread on a plate to cool and seperate using a fork.

Mix the ingredients of gatta and make a dough of it. Make balls and roll it into chapati. Roll it tightly and stick the end with a drop of water. Repeat for rest of the dough and cook these rolls in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain water, cool and cut into 1 inch pieces. Fry them in oil and keep aside.

Heat 2 tsp oil, add the masala paste and cook till oil seperates. Add the masala curd and cook till thick. Now add the fried gatta, potato cubes, bread slices and cooked peas. Divide into two portions

Add fried onions, cashews and raisins to the rice and divide it into three portions.

Temper mustard seeds, asafoetida and sesame seeds and put it in a round thick kadai. Spread one portion of the rice, then one layer of the masala, again rice, masala paste and finally the last layer of rice. Sprinkle a little milk and cook on low flame for 5-10 minutes.

Invert on a tray and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve with curd, pickle and papad.
