During this time, prepare the vegetables, onions, carrots, peel the potatoes, cut the stalks with a chili pepper and gut the pepper from the seeds. Rinse the above ingredients under running water along with fresh leaves of mint and coriander, place them on a cutting board one at a time and cut the onions and carrots into cubes with an approximate diameter 1 to 1 centimeter. Cut the pepper into 3 - 4 parts, and potatoes in small arbitrary pieces with an approximate diameter of 2 by 2 centimeters, you can slightly more. With greens, shake off excess liquid and chop it on a cutting board with medium pieces or as you like. Arrange all the ingredients in separate plates, together with peeled peas and flesh of coconut, which I honestly replaced with coconut flakes. Put the potatoes in a bowl and fill with water so that it does not darken. After the lapse of 20 minutes drain water from the rice and put it in a pressure cooker.

Then add chili peppers to the onion and stew them 1 - 2 minutes. Then, in a short time, add fresh herbs of mint and coriander and fry them along with the rest of the ingredients for 2 - 3 minutes, by this time the onion will turn golden. After the onion has turned a light golden color, it's time to add coconut flesh or coconut to all the ingredients and simmer them together for 2 to 3 minutes. And the last but not least important vegetables in this vegetable collection are carrots, potatoes and green peas. Drain the potatoes and toss them together with the rest of the ingredients in a pan to the fried mass. Screw the plate to a small level and simmer the whole vegetable set for 3 to 4 minutes periodically stirring it with a kitchen spatula to avoid burning to the bottom of the pan.

Put the pressure cooker on the stove, which is turned on to the middle level, when the liquid boils, and you will hear it by the characteristic gurgling sound, screw the stove to the smallest level.

Put the finished pilaf in a slide on a large flat plate with a tablespoon, decorate with your favorite fresh vegetables and taste forwards.

Recipe Tips:

- - As described above in the ingredients, coconut flesh can be replaced with coconut flakes, but if you did buy it, just take the right amount of flesh out of the nut and add it to the stewed vegetables as described in the recipe.

- - Instead of all the above spices, you can add only one, its name Garam Masala is an Indian seasoning, which includes all the above spices and some other ingredients that can greatly improve the taste of pilaf. You can buy this miracle in any supermarket or online store.

- - If you don’t have basmati rice at your fingertips, you can use plain polished or unpolished long-grain rice instead.

- - If you do not have a pressure cooker, you can cook pilaf in a cauldron, a chicken bowl or a cast-iron pan. But, the cooking time of pilaf in these containers is doubled, that is, cook pilaf until fully cooked from about 35 to 45 minutes.
