The chick peas will go in the pot after frying the garam masala and cumin seeds. You have to soak the chick peas over night n then boil it with a pinch of baking soda in pressure cooker from 7_8 mins. You can use canned chick peas if u want to.

it also says to add 6 cups of water for every cup of rice. that cannot be right. And why does it tell you to add the water to the oil and onions? That will splatter everywhere.
