Grate the green apple using a grater(grate very fast else apple will change its color).Cook for 4 min in a microwave adding a very few drops of water (or) cook in a pressure cooker (w/o whistle) with 1/4 cup water till steam starts releasing thro' the nozzle.
In a pressure cooker, add oil & when it is hot, add mustard, urad dhal, curry leaves, coriander leaves one by one. When these splutter, add the grated ginger at a low - medium heat (since ginger sticks to the bottom & gets burnt easily).
Add onions and fry till they are transparent.
Add tomatoes and fry till they turn mushy.
Add the half cooked, grated apple and fry for 2 min.
Add all the masala powders and salt & fry for another 2 min.
Now add the basmati rice and water.Cook for 2 -3 whistles in a medium heat.
Turn off the heat and wait for the pressure to be released.
Serve with any vegetarian / Non - veg fries.
