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

1 tsp.sugar

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.
