To Be Mixed Together Into A Masala Mixture
2 tbsp coriander-cumin seeds powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp chilli powder
3/4 cup freshly grated coconut
1/3 cup finely chopped coriander (dhania)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
5 to 7 small onions , peeled
3 to 4 small potatoes , peeled
2 to 3 small brinjals
3 tbsp ghee
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
1 cup short grained rice (chawal) , soaked and drained
1/3 cup toovar (arhar) dal , soaked and drained
1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1/4 cup green peas
salt to taste
  1. Make criss-cross slits on the onions, potatoes and brinjals taking care not to separate the segments.
  2. Stuff each of the onions, potatoes and brinjals evenly using the prepared masala mixture. Keep aside.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Allow the steam to escape using natural release method, (refer handy tip) before opening the lid.
  6. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of ghee, mix well and serve immediately.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. Natural release method: to use this method, remove the pressure cooker from the hot burner and let the pressure drop by cooling down naturally.
  2. 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.
