  • In a mixer take all the ingredients mentioned under “to grind”. Grind it into a smooth paste. No need to add water. Water from the tomatoes would be enough to grind.

  • Heat a pressure cooker with oil and add sliced onions. Saute until translucent. Now add the ground paste along with salt, chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala.

  • Mix well so that all the flavours blend. Saute until raw smell goes off and oil oozes out. Now add cubed potato and frozen peas. Give it a quick mix.

  • Add washed basmati rice along with water. Mix carefully without breaking the rice. Check for salt. Pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for 7-10 mins. Once the pressure releases, fluff it with a fork.
