This spicy rice dish is a one dish meal. The spices and veggies make it aromatic and colourful.



Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes:2-3 servings

Ingredients
1 cup Basmati or long grain rice (washed and soaked for 30 min)
1 medium sized onion, cut into slices
Diced vegetables like carrot, french beans, cauliflower or broccoli florets, grean peas, sweet corn, boiled chickpeas/beans (Veggies are as per your choice.)
1 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
1 tsp oil (you may substitute ghee and use 2 tsp oil, but ghee gives good aroma)
1 bay leaf
5-6 cashews
Salt to taste
Veggies of your choice


To be ground into paste
1 cup chopped coriander leaves
1/4 cup grated coconut
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2-3 cloves
small stick cinnamon
seeds of 1 green cardamom
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2-3 black peppercorns
1 tsp fennel seeds
To be ground into a paste


Method
  • Grind the ingredients given under paste.

  • In a wide vessel (I have used pressure cooker), take oil and ghee. Once hot, add bay leaf and cashews. Fry for a bit.



  • Then add veggies and beans of your choice and fry for 2-3 min.

  • Beans make the dish healthier


  • Add the ground paste and fry for 2 min



  • Drain the soaked rice and add. Add 1 and 1/2 cup water and salt as per taste.



  • If cooking in a pressure cooker, cook till 2 whistles. If cooking in a regular vessel, cook on high till 1 boil, then cover and cook till water is almost absorbed. Here you may need to add some more water.

  • Once done fluff it up with a fork. Enjoy hot with yoghurt or any gravy of your choice.
