Cloves - 3

Star anise – 1

Spice powders:

Coriander powder – 1 ½ tsp

Garam masala – 1 tsp

Cumin powder – ½ tsp

Chilly powder – ½ tsp

Turmeric powder - just a pinch!


1. Wash rice, drain and soak for 15 mins

2. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker and add all the whole spices.

3. Add onions, ginger garlic paste and chillies and cook till onions are nicely pinkish golden
