Preparation

  • recipe preparation icon
    Rinse the basmati rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for about 20-30 minutes. This step will help to achieve fluffy and separate grains of rice.
  • recipe preparation icon
    In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or pressure cooker, heat the ghee or vegetable oil over medium heat.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add the cumin seeds, bay leaf, black peppercorns, cloves, green cardamom, and cinnamon stick. Sauté for a minute or until the spices release their aroma.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add the sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Stir in the chopped ginger and minced garlic, and cook for another minute.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add the mixed vegetables to the pot and sauté for 3-4 minutes until they are slightly cooked.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Drain the soaked rice and add it to the pot. Gently stir the rice with the vegetables and spices, coating each grain with the flavors.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Add turmeric powder, garam masala, and salt to the rice and vegetables. Mix well.
  • recipe preparation icon
    Pour in the water and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid, and let the rice cook until it's fully done and the water is absorbed. This should take about 15-20 minutes on the stovetop and 5 minutes after the first whistle if using a pressure cooker.
