Pressures on your time are so hard that you just wish things would just be done on their own……..the clothes would be laundered, the house cleaned, n the food cooked. So much so that you wish that an army of fairies would invade your home while you are away, n make your wish their command……..wishful thinking – isint it???
Well but there are a few things, that are so easy…I mean really a jiffy to cook n effortless at that, n yet so very fulfilling n comforting that it truly would make you wonder if it was you who did it- or say, ….”a fairy”. The output of this super-duper simple recipe is too good n it can be had as a simple homely meal, or be a conversation starter at a party!! I love it in my own way, I hope you will too.
The following recipe would comfortably serve 2/3 people.
1 medium glass basmati rice
1 big onion
1/2 cup – fresh sweet peas
2 pcs – 1 inch stick of cinnamon or equivalent
Wash & soak the rice grains for about 15 mins
In a cooker add a generous quantity of ghee (you can reduce the ghee if you are too concious, but the ghee brings out the best in the dish)
Add the cinnamon sticks & let the aroma rise.
Add the onions till they are pink in colour. Dont let them turn brown at all.
Add the peas & the drained rice grains.
Fry these well for about 2 mins on high flame.
Add the same glass full of water & close the lid.
Just allow one whistle, let the steam pass.
You have the most simple yet most flavorful rice you’ve ever tasted.
If you are cooking in a vessel n not a cooker, add 2 glasses of water & cook till the water is dried, stirring occassionally.
