Discription:This is very tasty veg rice.Try it and Enjoy!!!!!
  • 120g Basmati rice (long grained rice)
  • 240g water
  • 1 medium size onion (red, sliced thinly)
  • ¼ cup green peas (frozen)
  • ¼ cup french beans (chopped)
  • ¼ cup cauliflower (chopped into tiny florets)
  • ¼ cup carrot (chopped)
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup halved cashew nuts
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 small ½ inch long cinnamon sticks
  • ½ tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Oil for cooking (I used olive oil instead of ghee)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of sugar
How to make:
  • Wash and drain rice on a kitchen towel. 
  • When it is slightly dry, heat 2 tbsp oils in a large pan and splutter cardamon, cinnamon sticks, cloves and bay leaf. 
  • Add in rice and tumeric powder and stir continuously for 2-3 mins in low heat and keep aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in the same pan and stir-fry the raisins until they turn plump or look like golden grapes and keep aside.
  • Fry the cashew nuts in the same oil until they turn into golden colour. 
  • Drain both the nuts and raisin in a kitchen towel.
  • With the remaining oil, saute all the veggies for 2-3 mins in low heat, add in salt, and stir-fry until they are well-coated with the oil and cooked slightly.
  • Remove the veggies and add more oils to the pan to fry the thinly sliced onions until they turn into golden brown. then add a pinch of sugar to the onion while frying so that it will give a taste of nice caramelised onions.
  • Remove the fried onions and drain them on kitchen tower.
  • Keep a spoonful of fried nuts, raisins and half of the fried onions for garnishing later.
  • As I used AMC cooking pot, I mixed everything together and add in water.
  • Cook with medium high heat. When the timer showed 2 o’clock, use a fork to gently separate the rice so as not to get stickly to the bottom of the pot. 
  • Cover the lid again and continue to cook with medium heat until the timer hit 3 o’clock. 
  • Off the heat and wait until the timer moved back to 12 o’clock (so that the rice will be fully cooked)
  • Garnish with the rest of the nuts, raisins and & onion and serve.
