This is one of the easiest and quick option for a lunch/dinner. You can try this with any long variety of rice, but I prefer basmati rice. It is prepared with ghee as well as spices. You can serve it with any veg/nonveg gravy.
- Basmati rice – 1 cup
- Ghee – 2 tablespoon
- Onion – 1, thinly sliced
- Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
- Cardamon – 1
- Cloves – 2
- Bay leaf -1
- Star anise -1
- Cashew, Raisins – a few
- Soak basmati rice in water for 10 minutes, drain the water and keep it aside.
- Add onion and fry till they turn golden brown and keep it aside.
- Heat ghee in a pan, add all the spices,(cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf and star anise). Now add the drained rice and fry for a few minutes.
- Add 2 cups of boiling water, needed salt and cook till rice is done. Garnish with fried onion,cashew nuts and raisins.
