Mash pulao
This is one of my back home favorite rice dishes .this simple but beautiful rice is go wonderful with meat or vegetable curries . our family friends always serve this wonderful rice with meatballs and as a kid we love it.   
2 cups long grain rice [sella rice] or basmati rice
1/2-cup green mash dal
Salt and pepper according to taste
3 black pepper corns
1 stick cinnamon
1tsp cumin seeds
1tsp garam masala
1 large cardamom
4 tbsp canola oil
4 cups water or meat stock

Wash mash dal separately and soak them in water for 3 hours the same with rice if you are using sella rice. Don’t soak basmati rice more then 15 minutes .now add 2 cups of water and mash dal to a pot and bring to boil low the flame and let it cook for 15 minutes then off the flame and cover.
In a separate pot add oil and add all the spices except garam masala.
