3.  Add chopped onion and ginger. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
4.  Add split green gram and fry for 3-4 minutes. Add turmeric powder and garam masala and fry for a minute.
5.  Now add rice and fry for 2 minutes.
6.  Pour 4 cups of water and add salt, close the cooker. Cook for 3 -4 whistles or till your rice gets done.

Note: Level of water depends on how you want to cook the rice. If you want it mushy add another cup of water and cook the rice. If I use basmati rice I use 2.5-2.75 cup of water. If I use sona masoori rice I use almost 3- 3.5 cups of water for a cup of rice, so it depends.
