Next add green peas to the pan and fry for few seconds and switch off the flame. Add rice and measured cup of coconut milk and water (however, amount of water, and cooking time depends upon the age and brand of rice. So, first try for small batch) in the pressure cooker. Then add fried items in the cooker, along with the rice. salt and bring it to boil in high flame. When it starts to boil, simmer the flame and close the lid of the cooker and cook it for exactly 10 minutes in simmer flame.
