It's a vegetarian version of the classic Indian main dish that features basmati rice, potato, carrots and peas and plenty of aromatic and flavorful Indian spices. It's also popular in Pakistan. As a main dish, it serves 4; but as a side dish it can serve 6-8 people.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring water and salt to a boil. Stir in the rice and boil until rice has absorbed all (or most of) the water, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the rice (if needed) and return rice to the pot, and cover to keep warm.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, melt the ghee (or butter) with the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the cumin, turmeric, curry powder, and cayenne and cook, stirring, for 1 minute longer. Add the potato, carrots, water, and salt. Increase the heat to moderately high and simmer until the vegetables are tender and no liquid remains in the pan, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      To serve, stir the peas into the other vegetables and remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the yogurt and rice and serve topped with the jalapeno, tomato, and cilantro.

      This is a great vegetarian meal -- really nice and not too spicy. We loved the combination of the peas, carrots and potatoes along with the rice. I did add some tomato puree along with the fresh tomato, but otherwise made as directed. All you really need is some Naan bread or a nice salad if you prefer. Made for ZWT-8-Indian Tiffin Challenge.

      I really love this rice recipe. I thought it would be heavy, because of the potato mixed in, but it wasn't. And this a bit on the spicy side, but I kind of liked it that way. I thought the spicyness was fitting was for this kind of recipe.
