Simple Sumptuous Cooking
Add oil to the inner pot in Instant Pot and press the saute setting. As the oil heats up, add cumin seeds.
Follow up by adding onions, grated ginger, and green chilies. Stir constantly for a minute.
Add tomatoes and continue to stir for at least a minute. Add all the spices and stir continuously for 1-2 minutes.
Now add all veggies and salt and continue to mix them well to get an even coat of spices on the veggies.
Add rinsed rice, lentil, and water. Give it a good stir one last time.
Close the lid of the instant pot and turn the steam release handle to the sealing position. Select the pressure cooking option and set the time for 7 minutes.
