One pot meal! Well I am a great fan of a one pot meal. Life is much earlier when you just have to get everything into one pot and your food is ready!
I like it with just plain yogurt.
You need –
- Basmati rice – 1 cup
- Hot water – 2 cups
- Onion – 1 medium, finely chopped
- Carrot – 1, finely chopped length-wise
- French beans – 8-9, chopped
- Frozen peas – 1/2 cup
- Tofu – cubed, 1 cup
- Green chili – 1, slit
- Ginger-garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
- Fennel seeds – ½ teaspoon
- Bay leave -1
- Clove- 1
- Cinnamon – 1 small stick
- Cardamom – 2
- Salt – to taste
- Ghee/clarified butter – 1 tablespoon
How to –
Wash and clean the rice. Soak in water for 30 minutes and drain well. Fry the tofu in oil till golden brown. Set aside.
In Pan, heat the ghee, tip in the wholes spices and fry till fragrant. Add the onions, chili and ginger-garlic paste. Saute till the onion turn pink and the raw smell of ginger-garlic is gone. Please make sure not to burn them as this will change the color of the rice when you cook. Add the veggies and tofu; saute for a couple of minutes.
Add the rice and fry till the rice doesn’t stick to each other ensuring the rice not turning brown. Add 2 cups of water and salt to taste. Cook till done.
Serve hot with plain yogurt or raita.
