Coconut Rice

This is a fragrant rice and can be made in a jiffy if you have coconut milk ready.  if you have time you can make fresh coconut milk. 


Rice 1 cup (I used sona masoori/you can use basmati)
Coconut milk 2 cups fresh or canned  ( I used ready available one)
Vegetables (carrots, beans, peas,)
Green chillies 2 slit
Ginger 1" grated
Mint leaves 1 fistful
Jeera/cumin seeds 1 tsp
Fennel seeds 2 tsp
Bay leaves 1
Cloves 3
Cinnamon 1" stick
Cardamom 1 crushed
Ghee/ Clarified butter 3 tbsp

In a pressure cooker, heat ghee. Add all the spices plus chilies.
Fry till they are fragrant.

Add ginger, mint and the vegetables, rice and salt. Give a quick stir.

Then add 2 cups of coconut milk, cover and cook till 1 whistle (i use induction hot plate so I only took 1 whistle on gas flame it varies) or till done.

Enjoy Cooking!
