Steps

Prepare rice and green gram

  1. Dry roast the green gram and just pulse it in your processor and soak it in the water for 1 hour and keep aside. ( make sure not to grind it. We just need it to get splitted)
  2. Wash and soak your rice for 15 to 20 mins.

Cook and Serve

  1. Heat a thick bottom deep pan and melt the ghee, add in cinnamon stick,cardamom, cloves and bay leaf. When you get its aroma, add in the onion and green chilli. Saute it for a min,just it needs to turn pink (make sure not to brown the onion).
  2. Now add coconut milk, enough salt and when it comes to boil, add green gram and rice. ( make sure to discard complete water you used for soaking, else it may over cook the rice and lentle ).keep the flame to medium. Close the lid and cook
  3. Once all the coconut milk evaporated, keep the flame to low and just turn the rice upside down using your spatula,to make sure all rice cook evenly.
  4. When rice cook completely, switch off the flame and serve hot with your preferred curry.

Tips and Tricks :-

  • You can avoid coconut milk and use water instead. But coconut milk gives rich flavor to the dish.
  • 1st use 2 1/4 coconut milk and add additional 1/4 cup if required ( some rice may need more water)
  • You can also add  curry leaves to the ghee while adding cardamom and cinnamon stick, which will give nice aroma. I didn’t use due to unavailability.
