Cabbage Green Peas Rice ~ Pressure Cooker Method

I always like one pot meals, it makes life easy and less time consuming also, but at the same time I want to try different rice varieties, thought I'l give a try to this Cabbage Green Peas Rice in pressure cooker, and it turned out awesome. Since this recipe is cooked with just 1tsp oil, its a healthy dish also.

Things Required
1 Small cabbage finely chopped
1 small cup green peas(I used frozen peas)
1 cup rice
1 onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1tsp ginger grated
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp each turmeric, coriander powder, garam masala, amchur powder and red chilly powder
Salt as per taste
Oil 1 tsp

Heat oil in a pressure cooker and splutter cumin seeds, once they are done add garlic and onion and sauté until onion turns pinkish.
Now add finely chopped tomato and wait until tomato becomes mushy.
Add cabbage, green peas and all the masala powders and sauté for 2mins.
Add3 cups of water and bring to boil, when the water starts to boil add salt and rice.
Mix well and cook for 2 whistles.
Serve hot with any raita of your choice

I served with Cucumber Tomato Raita, for this mix together finely chopped tomato, cucumber, beaten curd, salt, black salt and chaat masala, mix and serve chill.

Potato and 3Bean Chaat : for this soak rajma, blackeye beans and kabuli chana overnight, drain the water and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles.
Cook one potato until soft but firm, in a mixing bowl add all the cooked beans, potato, salt and pepper powder.

Squeeze a fresh orange and mix with lemon and sugar and and serve your Orange Lemon Juice chill.
