- 250 g basmati rice
- 250 mL water (for boiling rice)
- 3 tsp salt
- 20 nos soya bean chunks
- 1 no onions, large
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 no bay leaf
- 2 tsp jeera (cumin)
- nos cloves
- 10 nos black peppercorn
- 1 no cinnamon, 1-inch long
- 2 nos, green chilly small
- 100 g cholia (fresh green gram)


1. Pick, wash and soak rice for half an hour. Boil water and add salt. Remove from fire and drop in soya bean chunks for 15 minutes.

2. Peel onion and thickly slice. Heat heavy bottom and add canola oil. Add bay leaf, jeera, cloves, peppercorn and cinnamon. Once they splutter, add onions and green chillies slit and saute until onion turns light brown. Squeeze out excess water from the soya chunks and along with cholia, add to pan. Add salt and saute for 2 minutes. Add salt and rice. Now pour water and let rice boil.

3. Once half the water is evaporated, turn the heat low and cover with tight-fitting lid.

4. Cook for another 8 minutes and turn off heat. Let it rest in this position for another 10 minutes.

5. Remove lid and serve hot.

Yield: 6 servings.

Note: Do not stir the rice at any point, as it can break. The water added to rice is always dependent on the quality of rice and the length of time you soak it for.
