ANGLO-INDIAN PISH-PASH

Pish-Pash is a coloquial Anglo-Indian Name for rice that has been over cooked or pish-pashy. Pish-Pash is a simple rice and lentils (dhal) dish cooked together till both the rice and dhal are overcooked and soft. A few peices of chicken or a chicken soup cube could also be added while cooking to give the dish a better flavour. This dish could also given to invalids as it is found to be easily digestible.
