1 tsp Toor Dhal
1 tsp Fennel seeds
3 Cloves
1/2 inch Cinnamon Stick
1 Stalk Curry Leaves


Add oil in the pressure cooker and when its hot add all the seasoning and wait till it gets little browned. Then add the chopped onions and toss it for 2 minutes. Then add the garlic & ginger and toss itย till they turn light brown. Finally add the tomatoes, mint, coriander, turmeric and chilli powder and wait till the oil comes up.

Now add 1 cup of rice along with 1 and half cups of water. Then close the pressure cooker and keep for 4 whistle and turn it off.
