Peel off onion and chop it finely. In a pressure cooker add oil, bay leaf and chopped onions. Saute till the onions turn translucent.
Next include chopped beans, carrot and drained green peas. Give a quick stir. Rinse broken wheat in enough water, drain and add it to the pressure cooker. Saute well.
Next add the spice puree from step 1 and mix it well. Adding 2.5 cups of water and salt, close the lid. Pressure cook it for 3 whistles in medium flame. When the pressure subsides naturally, open the lid and fluff.
