My boy doesn't like rice varieties much for his lunch box so weekly once only takes either this rice or carrot rice along with some potato chips and veggie chips.Here is my version of delicious rice.
|Basmathi rice/Ponni raw rice||1cup|
|Onion(finely chopped)||1no.(medium size)|
|Potato(small cubes)||1no.(medium size)|
|Red chilly powder||1/2tsp|
|Garam masala powder||1/4tsp|
|Cinnamom/pattai||1 inch piece|
Wash the rice and cook it in a pressure cooker or electric cooker with a pinch of salt and a tsp of oil.Once it is done separate the grains and keep it aside.
Heat a pan with oil and splutter the cumin seeds and add the whole garam masala.Then add the green chillies and cashews,fry it for a minute,saute the onion till transparent.
Serve it with a vegetable fry and chips or onion raita.
- The rice can be cooked separately or it can be add to the masal and cook it in the pressure cooker for a whistle.
- As I ran out of frozen peas I used the soaked dried peas and cook it in the pressure cooker for a whistle.
