Goda Masala Spice Blend


  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 tablespoon grated coconut frozen works well, optional
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons ghee optional

Mattha - Cooling Yogurt Drink

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped
  • 10 mint leaves optional
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon green chili
  • 1 teaspoon ginger grated
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • In a small pan, roast all the spices for Goda masala on medium heat until all the spices are hot to touch. About 2 to 3 minutes. Take the spices out in a bowl and allow them to cool. Once the spices are completely cool, grind them to a fine powder in a small spice jar. Reserve the Goda Masala spice blend.
  • Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and heat oil. Add hing and turmeric. Add onions and saute for 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon salt, curry leaves, ginger, garlic and saute for a minute.
  • Add tomatoes and mix well. Press cancel and saute for another minute, deglazing the bottom of the pot. Add potatoes, eggplant, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, red chili powder, cilantro and mix well.
  • Add the spice blend, rice, and water. Give a quick stir and close the Instant Pot lid with the pressure release valve to sealing. Pressure cook on low pressure for 5 minutes followed by 5-minute natural pressure release. Release the remaining pressure by turning the pressure release valve to venting. Open the Instant Pot and garnish with cilantro and coconut.
  • Mix gently and top with ghee. Ghee can also be added while serving. Enjoy hot with yogurt or mattha.
