- Make criss-cross slits on the onions, potatoes and brinjals taking care not to separate the segments.
- Stuff each of the onions, potatoes and brinjals evenly using the prepared masala mixture. Keep aside.
- Heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a pressure cooker, add the asafoetida, rice, toovar dal and turmeric powder, mix gently and sauté on a medium flame for a minute.
- Add the stuffed vegetables, green peas, salt and 2½ cups of hot water, mix gently and pressure cook on a high flame for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape using natural release method, (refer handy tip) before opening the lid.
- Add the remaining 1 tbsp of ghee, mix well and serve immediately.
- Natural release method: to use this method, remove the pressure cooker from the hot burner and let the pressure drop by cooling down naturally.
- It works best for grains and for beans that you might use for salads, as quick-releasing the pressure can cause the beans to split apart.
