Last week we celebrated our 4th anniversary. I decided to make a yummy dinner for Tanmaya but he loves when I prepare something new and I was running out of ideas so I decided to give a try to coriander rice. It goes great with raita and any masaledar curry.
- Basmati Rice: 1 cup
- Onion: 1 small thinly sliced
- Cardamom : 2
- Javitri : 1
- Cumin Seeds: 1/2 tsp
- Green Chillies: 2-3 ( adjust as per your taste)
- Coriander Leave: 1 bunch
- Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
- Ginger: 1/2 a inch
- Coriandre Powder: 1 tbsp
- Cumin Powder: 1 tsp
- Salt as per taste.
- Fried Onion: 1/2 cup
- Oil: 2 tbsp
Make a fine paste of with coriander leaves, green chillis and ginger.
Cook the rice with 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker or any way you prefer.
In a kadhai heat the oil, add the Cumin seeds, cardamom and javitri.
As the cumin stops spluttering add the sliced onions with a pinch of salt and cook till onions are translucent.
Add the coriander, green chili and ginger paster, along with salt to taste, coriander powder, cumin powder and cook till the raw smell is gone and oil slits oozing out.
Add the cooked rice little at a time and keep tossing carefully not to mash up the rice.
Once all the rice is added fry for another 2 mins.
turn of the heat and add the fried onions and mix well.
Serve it hot with raita and curry and enjoy.
Till then happy blogging.
