Ingredients

  • 1 cup Rice I've used Jeerakashala / Kaima rice, you can use Basmati rice too
  • 3 Cardamom crushed
  • 1 medium piece Cinnamon
  • 2 Cloves
  • 1-2 Bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp Crushed ginger & garlic each
  • 2 Green chilli crushed
  • 2/3 cup Peas I used frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Chopped coriander & mint leaves each
  • 1 3/4 cups Water
  • Salt
  • 1-2 tbsp Ghee

Instructions

  • Heat ghee in a wide and deep pan.
  • Add whole spices (cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf & cumin). Fry for a min.
  • Add chopped onion and cook till it becomes soft, no need to brown.
  • Add crushed ginger, garlic & green chilli. Cook for 2-3 mins.
  • Add peas and chopped mint & coriander leaves, salt & lemon juice. Cook for 2-3 mins.
  • Add washed & drained rice. Stir on lowest flame for 3-4 mins.
  • Add water & bring it to boil. Let it simmer for 7-8 mins, or until the water is dried completely and rice is cooked.
  • Gently fluff the rice with a fork.
  • Serve hot with your choice of side dish

Notes

I've used 1 3/4 cups of water instead of 2 cups. I feel this helps to cook the rice perfectly without being mushy.
