  • 1 kg rice soaked for an hour
  • 4 onions finely sliced
  • 2 to matoes chopped
  • 2 cups yogurt
  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • 3 potatoes cubed
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1/2 cup beans cut into 1 inch sticks
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1 beetroot diced
  • bunch of coriander leaves

  • 4 tablespoon oil or ghee

  • Heat oil or ghee in a pressure cooker and fry the green chili and onions till golden brown.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell disappears from it. Now add the coriander powder, chili powder, garam masala powder, salt and tomato. Cook for couple of minutes and add the yogurt.
  • Add all the vegetables potatoes, carrot, beans, peas, beetroot, and add the rice and water. For 1 cup of rice, you will have to add 2 cups of water. This will depend upon the quality and type of rice. I have used the raw ponni rice and hence I have added 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice.
  • Add the mint and coriander leaves and give it a stir. Bring it to a boil and close the lid and cook for 1 whistle. Now reduce the flame after first whistle and simmer for 15 minutes. Switch off the flame and allow the steam to escape on its own.
  • Open the lid and fluff up the rice gently. Serve hot wih raita.
