2 tablespoon of Sambhar Powder

Heat some oil in a pressure cooker.Add mustard seeds and then the cumin seeds.Add small onions.Fry till it turns transparent.
Now add the vegetables,fry it for a minute or two.Then add turmeric powder and sambhar powder.Mix everything together. Saute it for 2 mins.
Now add the rice and toor dal.Add Salt.Mix them.Add 4-5 cups of water.Cover the pressure cooker and remove it from the fire after 5-6 whistles.Serve hot with Papad/Chips !
