In a pressure cooker or large bowl heat oil, add the cumin seeds and turmeric, when seeds start to splutter add the grated ginger curry leaves and green pepper. Add all the vegetables and sautee for a couple of min. (Add carrots, potatoes, beans, peas and tomatoes in the order). Add the prewashed rice, moong daal and water. Adjust the water as per mode of cooking (if making in pressure cooker it may take less water as against cooking in a pan). Close the lid and cook until done. Add a ghee and mix well before serving.
