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.

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.
