  • 6-8sliced cashew nutsToasted in the microwave for 2 minutes
  • 6-8sliced almondsToasted in the microwave for 2 minutes
Instructions
  1. Add one and a half cups of water to the washed rice and leave it to soak.
  2. Put ghee/oil in a pan with a thick base on medium heat. Do not overheat as the spices will burn. Add all the spices mentioned under the spices list. When it starts sputtering and the jeera turns golden add the onions.
  3. Saute the onions on a medium heat till it softens and turns golden. Make sure not to burn the spices by stirring constantly. Add the kale and saute till wilted.
  4. Add the the soaked rice along with the water. Add salt to taste. Usually with Basmati rice, one cup of rice needs two cups of water. Since we add the kale, it will release some water and hence we need to add only 1.5 cups of water instead of two in this recipe.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Give it a stir after ten minutes to prevent it from burning at the bottom or sticking to the pan.
  6. Garnish with the toasted nuts and serve hot as a side with any gravy or with some yogurt raita.
