Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 4

Add tomatoes and fry till they turn mushy.

Step 5

Add the half cooked, grated apple and fry for 2 min.

Step 6

Add all the masala powders and salt & fry for another 2 min.

Step 7

Now add the basmati rice and water.Cook for 2 -3 whistles in a medium heat.

Step 8

Turn off the heat and wait for the pressure to be released.

Step 9

Serve with any vegetarian / Non - veg fries.
