Basmati rice 4-5 cups
Ghee 1/4 cups
Oil 1/4 cups
Onions sliced 3 nos
Spring onions chopped 1 cups
Red chilli flakes 1 tbsp
Ginger garlic green chilli paste 1 1/2 tbsp
Cloves 5 nos
Cinnamon sticks 4 nos
Green cardamom pods 5 nos
Bay leaves 3 nos
Star anise 1 nos
Green apples cored and cubed 6-7 nos
Coriander leaves chopped 1/2 cups
Vegetable stock 8-10 cups
Roasted cumin powder 1 tbsp
Roasted coriander powder 1 tbsp
Udupi Ruchi Garam masala powder 1 tsp
Raisins 1/4 cups
Mixed nuts toasted,(optional) 1/4 cups
Asafoetida 1/8 tsp
Salt 1 1/2 tbsp
Caraway seeds 1 tsp
First of all, soak the rice for 20 minutes.
Cook it al dente using the vegetable stock and half of the salt.
In a pan, heat ghee and oil.
Saute the onions until done for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the whole spices one by one.
Add the asafoetida too with the cubed apple pieces.
Now add the powdered spices and give it all a good mix.
Add the chopped green onions too
Cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the apples get tender.
Do not over cook it. Apples usually get done in 4 to 5 minutes on a low flame.
Now add the rice and sprinkle garam masala. Give all that a good mix. Cover and simmer on low flame for 10 to 12 minutes.
Garnish with toasted nuts and raisins.
Also garnish with coriander leaves for that heavenly aroma.
This is my innovative recipe by using green apples. As these are already sour, there is no need to add any lemon juice. Favourite veggies can also be added to it. Spice levels can be adjusted too. This can be made with leftover rice too.
