Ghee Rice with Khadi



Ghee Rice Ingredients

rice - 2 cups
ghee (clarified butter) - 1/2 cup
onion - 1 thinly sliced
cinnamon - 1/2 stick
black pepper - 1 tb spoon
bay leaves - 2
cloves - 5
cumin seeds - 1/2 tb spoon
caraway seeds - 1/2 tb spoon

Ghee Rice Method

Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan (I used a cooker to season and to cook too), as the ghee melts add the spices and fry till the aroma spreads. Add sliced onions and fry till crisp. Add the washed rice and fry for a minute. Add water and salt. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. You can transfer the contents into a pressure cooker or a rice cooker and cook accordingly.

Khadi Ingredients

curd/yogurt - 2 cups
water - 2 cups
flour - 2 tb spoons (you can use any flour either besan or rice. I used rice flour)
turmeric powder - 1/2 tb spoon
salt - per taste

Making coriander paste
coriander - 1 bunch
green chillies - 3
ginger - a small piece
dried red chilli - 1
Make a paste of the above ingredients in a blender and keep aside.

Method

Finely beat the curd, water, flour, turmeric and salt. Bring it to boil while stirring continuously. Add the coriander paste, simmer and cook for 5 more minutes. Finally add the seasoning with asafoetida, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and a dry red chilli.
