Kushka

Kushka is a mild - flavoured rice ,where it can be had with any spicy gravy.This is a kind of biriyani.When we had a pot luck,saras brought this flavourful rice.I fell in love immediately.so prepared this rice for my chicken curry.It was awsome.

Recipe source: Saras's Kitchen


Ingredients:
1.Rice             -             2 cups
2.Onion                       -             1 (chopped)
3.Tomato                     -             1/2 (cubed)
4.G&G paste               -              1 tsp
5.Green chillies           -              4 to 6
6.Curd                          -             1/4 cup
7.Whole garam masala -             (few cloves,bay leaf,fennel seeds,cinnamon)
8.Mint leaves                -             a hand full
9.Cilantro                      -             a hand full

Method:
* Wash and soak basmati rice for 20 mins.

* Sprinkle some salt and saute it well.
* Dump in the ginger - garlic paste and scald.
* Now add the curd,mint leaves  and saute it with the mixture.



* Add the tomato chunks and slighlty mix with the masala.Dont mash the tomato,then the colour of the rice will become slight red.
* Now add the soaked rice and slightly fry with the masala.
* Now add 4 cup of water and bring it to boil.
* Add chopped cilantro,a tbsp of ghee ,cover and cook for 1 whitle
* Keep it in dhum for 15 mins.
