Tomato Egg Pulao - Pressure Cooker#MulticookerMonday

Easy meals are always a blessing when you have so many other chores to complete in the morning, with children leaving for school, hubby and me getting ready for work. Preparing a lunch box is definitely a difficult task for a working mom especially if your child is a picky eater. I always try to pack healthy lunch boxes for our meal. Here is one protein rich, quick and healthy meal.
1 Cup Measurement = 250 Ml
Serves 2 - 3 
1 Cup Heaped Basmati Rice
1 Medium Onion - chopped
1 Big Cube Vegetable Seasoning
2 - 3 Tablespoons Oil
1 Teaspoon Meat Masala powder
½ Teaspoon Sugar
2 Green Chillies - slit for garnishing
Grind To Fine Paste
2 Large Tomatoes
1" Piece Ginger - chopped
3 Cloves Garlic - chopped
2 Green Chillies
For The Egg
3 Boiled Eggs
1 Tablespoon Oil
A Pinch Turmeric powder
¼ Teaspoon Red chilly powder

Fry the boiled egg in a teaspoon of oil with a turmeric and red chilly powder, for 2 minutes until they turns golden brown.. Remove and keep aside.

Soak the basmati rice in water for 15 minutes.

Grind the tomato, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies to a fine paste without adding water. Remove this in a bowl, mix in the meat masala powder and sugar well. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pressure pan,  fry the chopped onions , fry until it turns translucent. Add the tomato paste to the onions, add seasoning cube and fry until the oil separates. Add the rice and very lightly mix it with a spatula till the spice coats the rice nicely. 
Add 2½ cups water and bring this to boil on high flame for 2 minutes. Add the fried eggs cover with the cooker lid and take 2 whistles on high flame. Switch off the flame. Leave the cooker aside till your ready to serve. Open the cooker and fluffy the rice with a fork. 
Serve in a platter with eggs on top. Serve with raita or salad.
