Step 3 Set a pressure cooker bottom on high flame. Add in the ghee, and let it melt. Add in the mustard, and let it splutter. Now, add in the cumin seeds and asafoetida. Let them stay in for a couple of seconds. Step 4 Drain out all the water from the soaked millets, and add them to the pressure cooker. Step 5 Add in the washed and drained moong daal as well, along with salt to taste, turmeric, chopped onions, carrot, capsicum, green peas, tomatoes and green chillies. Step 6 Add in 3 cups of water. Mix well. Close the pressure cooker, and put the whistle on.  Step 7 Allow3 whistles. Let the pressure release naturally. When the pressure comes down entirely, open the cooker.
