DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the rice well; drain.
  • Melt butter/margarine/ghee in a saucepan over low to medium heat.
  • Saute garlic paste/powder/minced garlic in butter for about 15 seconds, then add the chopped onions and saute until browned, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the rice, cumin seeds, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, peppercorns, and cloves to the onion-garlic mixture and saute for 10-15 minutes or until the rice is evenly browned.
  • Now add carrots, peas, salt, and water, stir, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook, without stirring, until the rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Uncover and evaporate excess water if any, remove from flame, and fluff up with a fork.
  • Season with extra salt and pepper, if necessary, and serve hot!
