Method :  
             Soak Chickpeas overnight and pressure cook it by adding reqd. amount of water + salt till done .

Chop Onions , tomatoes, capsicum, Carrot finely and keep it aside. Chop Potatoes lengthwise and keep it separately in a bowl immersed in water ..

Pressure Cook rice by adding reqd. amount of water ..I used Sona masoori rice and cookied it in rice cooker(I used 1: 1 3/4 ratio -  rice : water ) once done spread the cooked rice in a big bowl and add a tsp. of ghee , mix it gently and set aside..

Heat a kadai and add 2 tsp. of oil + mustard seeds and allow it to splutter then add Urid dhal + methi seeds + curry leaves + onion + salt + hing powder and fry for few mins...then add capsicum + potatoes +Carrot + tomatoes and cook for few mins. just sprinkle little water ..when it is almost done add turmeric powder + dhaniya powder + Jeera powder + chilli powder +pav bhaji masala powder + Cooked chickpeas and add very little water and cook it well till the water evaporates, now switch off the flame and add the lemon juice and garnish with corriander leaves .

Now add the cooked onion - tomato mixture to the cooked rice and mix it gently and evenly and serve it with raita or Chips .  

You can skip chickpeas and just add groundnuts and make the rice ...
