Vegetable rice

Some times we used to feel bored of having biryani and  normal variety rice, this vegetable rice is the right choice to have something non spicy and filling. Usually i prepare vegetable rice using only veggies but once my family fallen in love with meal maker, i try to add it in variety rices like biryani,vegatable rice,tomato biryani.

Recipe :

* Chop onion lengthwise.

* Soak meal maker 5 minutes before.
* Chop garlic and ginger. Just smash it roughly.

In a pressure cooker, add ghee or oil. Add whole spices and fry for awhile. Now add onion,green chilli,ginger and garlic. Fry till onion is crispy. Add chopped vegetables and fry till all vegetables are fried well in oil. Now add meal maker,turmeric powder, garam masala and salt. Now add rice and fry it in oil for a while and then add enough water( I took water in 1 : 1 1/2 ratio) .Check for the salt and spiciness . If spicy is less,add garam masala and chilli powder according to the need. If needed ,can squeeze lemon juice on top. Finally add chopped coriander leaves and 1/2 tsp ghee. Cover the pressure cooker and leave it for one whistle . After first whistle, reduce the flame to sim and cook for 5 to 8 more minutes. Switch off the flame after 8 minutes and open the cooker after 5 minutes. Yummy vegetable rice is ready. Serve with raita or potato fry.


* Adding garam masala can be avoided ,if you like to have non spicy food.
* You can add chopped tomato before closing the cooker lid, i like to have chuck piece of tomato in vegetable rice.
* It is easy to make and best take away food when we plan for a picnic .
