Brown Rice Pilaf

What I used:

Brown Basmati Rice : 2 cups
Mixed Vegetables : 1 cup (Potatoes, carrots, corn, peas.  Wash, peel and cut potatoes and carrots into small cubes.)
Onion : 1/2 (Cut into thin slices)
Green Chillies : 6 to 8 (slit lengthwise)
Chopped Coriander : 3 tbsp
Cardamom : 6
Cloves : 6
Cinnamon : 1 inch piece
Shahijeera : 1 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste : 1 tbsp
Water : 3 1/2 cups
Oil / ghee : 2 tbsp
Salt : to taste

How I did:
  • Wash rice and soak for half an hour.
  • Heat ghee in a pressure cooker on medium high flame, add all the spices.
  • When they start to crackle, add green chillies, onions and ginger garlic paste.  Saute till the onions turn translucent.
  • Add the vegetables and saute for few minutes.  Add chopped coriander and mix.
  • Add salt and rice and combine well.  Let fry for a minute and add 2 cups of water.
  • Adjust the salt and cook covered with whistle for upto 3 whistles.  
  • Alternatively use an electric cooker.  The entire process can be done using a vessel of an electric cooker.  Once the water is added transfer the vessel to the electric cooker and cook till done.
  • Serve with raita.
