Basmati rice - 1 and 1/2 cups, Coconut milk-1 and 1/2 cup, Water -1 and 1/2 cup , Oil - 1/2 cup, Butter- 2 tbsp, Bay leaf - 1 number, Pearl onion - 1 cup, Diced tomato-3/4 cup, Peeled and diced potato- 1/2 cup, Diced carrots, beans, cauliflower florets, peas - each 1/2 cup , Cilantro-1/4 cup, Mint leaves- 10 leaves. Take the dry ingredients in the spice list and grind first. This is significant when utilize poppy seeds. Add garlic, ginger and chili then and grind to a well stick. In a big pressure cooker, heat oil and butter when it is real hot, throw in the bay leaf and onions, sauté well. When the onions turn transparent, add all the vegetable except tomato. Stir in for few minutes and add the masala. After a couple of minutes, throw in tomatoes and salt to wilt the tomatoes quickly. Add the cilantro and mint.

Work on slow heat, by that time wash and soak the basmati rice. When the raw smell fades away, add the rice and stir slightly. Now add the coconut milk and water. Test the spice level and salt level. When the water comes to a boil, close the lid and cover the nozzle with a stainless steel tumbler. Keep medium heat. Turn off the heat after 10 long minutes. Wait for a while and open the lid to fill your house with the spicy aroma. Smell, see and eat.
