My Notes:

  • You can also  add 2 tbsp onion while sauteing the veggies.
  • Use freshly ground pepper for a great flavour.
  • Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also retains its crunchiness without the raw smell.
  • I soaked basmati rice for 30 mins then pressure cooked for 1:1.5 ratio(rice:water) for 3 whistles in medium low flame.It depends on your cooker and basmati rice variety too.
  • Make sure to fluff the rice and spread it with little olive oil to make the grains separate.Allow it to rest atleast for 15mins.
