This fabulous rice is quite irresistable... try once and u will be asked to prepare regularly !!!!
- 5-6 tsp oil
- Half cup finely chopped garlic
- 2-3 whole red chillies, broken
- 1 tsp whole jeera
- 1/2 cup finely sliced onion
- 1/2 cup finely sliced tomatos
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp hing/perungayam
- 1 tsp dhanya powder
- 1 tsp jeera powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup basmati rice
- 1 cup tomato pureee
- 11/4 plain water
- 4 tsp finely chopped coriander leaves
Heat oil in vessel and add ingredients for temper
Add in onions, saute till golden brown
Add in tomatos and spices
Add in tomato puree and water. Check salt and spice content in water form.
Add in basmati rice which was soaked for fifteen minutes and cook on open vessel. It is best to cook basmati rice in open vessel than pressure cooking because pressure cooking makes basmati rice soggy, but cooking in open vessel renders grainy texture of rice. Cook till rice rises to top and cook for ten more minutes simmer flame with vessel closed.
Serve hot with coriander leaves garnished
Hmm.... so yummyyyy
