This recipe was innovated,when there was a power cut ,and i had to prepare this very quickly for the lunch box,and guess what?… it turned very good!
Iv used snake gourd in this recipe
500 gm jeeraga samba rice
2 carrots (chopped)
10 beans cut into 1 inch pieces
1 small snake gourd(seeds removed and cut into strips)
6-7 pips of garlic
4-5 green chillies
2 inch piece ginger
a little mint leaves
a little coriander leaves
1 tsp. sea moss
2-3 onions sliced fine
a pinch of mace
1/2 tsp.garam masala
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup curd
Pound garlic,ginger,green chillies,mint,coriander leaves,sea moss,and mace to a coarse mix.
Heat ghee and fry onions till brown,add the vegetables,the ground mixture,the rest of the ingredients and the rice and saute for 5 mins.Then add water (1 inch above the rice level),and cook on high heat till steam comes out of the pressure cooker.Put the vent and simmer jus for 15-20 mins.Remove from fire.
If additional richness is needed you could fry some nuts and sprinkle on the top while serving.
