Ghee Rice & Veg Kuruma


It was awesome to see Sivaji and Padmini together.
It is brilliant to hear SPB and S.Janaki together.
It was super cool to see Sachin and Saurav scoring together.
If there is another combination like that!!!!
It should be Ghee rice and Veg kuruma together. :)

I just adore this combination and its really heavenly. :) A simple rice with a rich kuruma is perfect for lunch. :)



Ghee rice

Ingredients:

Basmathi rice - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cloves - 3
Cardamom - 2
Bay leaf - 1
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Onion - 1
Saunf(Soambu) - 1/2 tsp
water
Salt - for taste


Method:

Take a pressure pan and add the ghee. Once it is slightly hot add all the spices and chopped onion and fry for a min. Now add the washed basmathi rice to it and fry for 2 min. Once done add 2 cups of water and salt and pressure cook for just a whistle.

Yummy ghee rice is ready to serve. :)



Veg Kuruma




Ingredients:

Chopped vegetables(Carrot, beans, potato etc) - 1 cup
Chillies - 4 (you can increse according to your taste)
Grated coconut - 2 tblsp
Cashews - 10
Poppy seeds - 1 tblsp
Saunf - 1/2 tsp
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon - 1/2 inch piece

Salt - for taste


Method:

Cook the diced vegetables and keep them aside. Grind coconut, chillies, cashews, poppy seeds, saunf, cloves and cinnamon together adding water liberally. Now mix the cooked vegetables with the ground masala adding adequate salt and allow it to boil for five min.

Simple yet rich and tasty kuruma is ready to eat. :) Goes best with ghee rice but sure it would be a nice combi with roti or chapathi too :)

Happy making and happy eating :)



I am sending this dish to Aathidhyam's Rice feast event.
