This is my new invention..trying out a rice on my own..It turned out really well..Here is how I prepared it..



Basmati rice - 2 cups
Peas - 1 cup
Corn - 1/2 cup
Cumin/Jeera seeds - 1 teaspoon
Onion(medium sized) - 1
Green chilli - 2
Cinnamon - 1 teaspoon
Bay leaf -1
Cardamom - 2
Cloves - 2
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Ghee -3 tablespoons
Cashews - 4
Grated cheese - 1/2 cup
Mint,coriander leaves for garnishing


Wash the rice and soak it in water for 20 minutes to half an hour..
In a pressure cooker add ghee and roast the cashews..then add all the spices(cumin seeds,cinnamon,bay leaf,cardamom,cloves,mint leaves) and saute for two minutes till all the flavor comes out..Add the sliced onions and fry till they become translucent..Also add the ginger-garlic paste and green chillies..After they get cooked add the green peas and corn..Then add the soaked rice and mix them together..Add salt to taste..Add 4 cups water and  cook until 3 whistles..After the pressure releases add the grated cheese and garnish with coriander leaves..If you do not like to add cheese add half cup of ghee..
This rice can be served with any kind of raita..
