This is a sweet pulao, which one of the 56 dishes that are cooked as prasad everyday for Lord Jaganath, Puri. This one of those dishes that reminds me of my childhood days when all our dear friends and family would gather for festivals like Karthik Poornima and mom would prepare this awesome dish along with many more lovely dishes.
- Basmati Rice: 1 cup
- Water: 2 cup
- Jeera: 1tbsp
- Tej Pata: 1
- Turmeric Powder: 1tsp
- Salt: 1 pinch
- Sugar: 1 cup
- Dry Red Chili: 1
- Ginger: 1 inch grated
- Ghee: 2 tbsp
Soak the rice in water for 30 mins
Heat Ghee in a pressure cooker and add jeer , Tej pata and dried red chili to it.
Add the grated ginger.
Drain and add the rice to the ghee. Fry till the raw smell is gone.
Add 2 cups of warm water to the rice.
Add the turmeric, salt and sugar.
Cover and cook till 1 whistle and the rice is done.
If you have a electric rice cooker you can fry all the ingredients in a pan and then move it to the rice cooker, add the 2 cups of water and cook on white rice setting.
This can be served with a variety of dishes like, dalma, Potala rasa (Purwal Masal), stuffed-dum-allo even with Mutton curry.
So enjoy the way you love it.
Till next time, happy blogging
