DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a pan on medium heat for 30 seconds before adding the oil.
  • Add the oil.
  • Add the ginger+garlic and let it brown slightly (30 seconds).
  • Add the onions and let them caramelize (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and let them cook to half their size.
  • Add the baby spinach and don’t stir it until its half its size.
  • Mix well.
  • Add the tomatoes, rice salt and spices.
  • Add one part water.
  • Give it a light stir.
  • Top with cardamom pods and close the lid.
  • Cook on medium heat for 12 minutes.
  • Open the lid and add the 2nd part water.
  • Close the lid again and cook for another 12 minutes or until the rice is cooked.
  • Garnish with lemon juice and cilantro (both are optional).
  • NOTES.
  • – Make sure you thoroughly wash the mushrooms and dry them completely before slicing them. Soggy mushrooms ruins the texture and taste of the rice.
  • – Thinly slice the mushrooms so that they cook quickly and evenly.
  • – Laxmi Dhanajiru Powder is a mix of Coriander and Cumin powder. You can use 1 1/2 tablespoons of this or a mix of Coriander and Cumin as shown in the ingredients. I'm just guessing on the ratio.
