Directions

  • 01

    First of all, soak the rice for 20 minutes.

    Cook it al dente using the vegetable stock and half of the salt.

  • 03

    Keep aside.

    In a pan, heat ghee and oil.

    Saute the onions until done for about 2 to 3 minutes.

  • 06

    Add the whole spices one by one.

    Add the asafoetida too with the cubed apple pieces.

    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.
