It is made of rice and lentils along with chicken or mutton pieces stewed together.
Just like a non veg khichuri or khichadi.
Very light, very healthy.

Fished it out and hung on to it tenderly...

Slices of lemon
Whole black peppercorns
grated ginger and salt.

Have it with a good amount of fresh lemon juice squeezed on it.
I did ... but forgot to add the same to the picture.
