Step 1) Flavoring :
Melt ghee in a pan and add the whole spices - cinnamon stick, bay leaves, cardamom, cloves and pepper corns,Cumin seeds, Ginger , green chilies and cashews. Saute it for a minute. Add 1 sliced onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until it turns golden.
Next add the vegetables ,I have used peas and carrot, you can add any vegetables of your choice. Mix it well and let it cook for 2 minutes. If you are using dry peas then soak it overnight and then cook it slightly and add it along with other vegetables.
Drain the water and add the soaked basmatic rice (soaked in water for 15minutes) ,
The ratio of Rice to coconut milk is 1 : 2 so for 1 cup of rice we need 2 cups of coconut milk. If you wanna make them in pressure cooker then cook for 1 whistle on medium heat.
Add salt and check for salt, the water should taste little salty indicating the amount of salt s correct.
Cover and cook on a medium heat until all the water has been absorbed by the rice or until the rice is fully cooked.
