1 pomegranate kernels
3tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ginger juice ( optional)
1 tbsp lime juice
1-2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp red chili flakes ( optional)
salt to taste
Cook the rice in the pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles. ( Add any amount of water, this rice does not mush, so you can drain the excess water) drain the rice.
Heat over to 450F. In a baking tray add the chopped veggies, pour the olive oil, add salt and pepper and let it roast for 7-8 min, then stir them around and roast for another 5-6 min or till it is roasted well, but not burnt.
