It is absolutely a must have for spice lovers like me. It is also a very easy and quick dish to make.
Rice: 3 cups
Cumin: 3 teaspoons
Garlic cloves: 1 full pod
Curry leaves: 3 strands
Red whole chillies: 4
Red chilli powder: 1 teaspoon
Salt: as per taste
Turmeric: 1 teaspoon
Oil: 4 tablespoons
Cook the rice until done and let it cool down.
Now make a fine paste of cumin (2 teaspoons only),garlic cloves ( 6 cloves),cloves,cardamom.
Once the rice is cooled down add salt,turmeric,red chilli powder and mix well.
Later add above paste to the rice mixture and mix until almost all the cooked rice is coated very well.
Now take a sautéing pan and add oil, add remnant cumin,chopped garlic and fry until nice and brown.
Now add red whole chillies,curry leaves and add above rice and coat with this tempering and cook on the flame for 5 -10 more minutes and switch off the flame.
