My Notes :

1. You can do directly in the pressure cooker. For photography purpose i did in pan.

2. If you don't want the whole spices to get bite in mouth then saute the spices and add along with the green paste and blend it. Else add garam masala instead of whole spices.

3. If you are doing directly in pressure pan then you can roast the strained rice separately and add it to pressure cooker. It give good results for not breaking the rice.
