  • Add in your vegetables and stir to coat with the flavored ghee.
  • Add rice, salt, water, peanuts, and all spices.
  • Cook on the Rice Setting (Low Pressure, 12 minutes) and let it release pressure naturally for 10 minutes, releasing remaining pressure.
  • Add chopped cilantro and serve. This dish would go well with the Tomato Coconut Soup.
