How to Make Pressure cooker sambar rice

  • Wash rice and dal together and put them into a big vessel that will fit into your pressure cooker.
  • Add the chopped vegetables (chop them slightly big so that they do not melt while pressure cooking), chopped tomatoes, sliced onion, tamarind, sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt.
  • Heat ghee in a seasoning ladle and add mustard seeds.
  • When the mustard splutters, add fenugreek seeds, asafoetida, broken red chillies and curry leaves and fry till the seasoning gives out a pleasant aroma.
  • Pour the seasoning into the vessel containing all the ingredients.
  • Add 6 cups of water, stir, and pressure cook for three whistles.
  • Once the pressure subsides, open and stir the sambar saadam.
  • Garnish with salted cashew nuts.
  • Serve hot with warm ghee drizzled on top.
