Vegetable Rice!

A very simple method. First cook the rice.  For one cup rice you need following ingredients.

Beans 4 to 5 numbers

carrot one medium size

one big onion cut them into small pieces

Peas 1/2cup

cauliflower 1/2 cup

green chillies 4 numbers

ginger one inch

tomato big size  one

capsicum (optional)

coriander leaves  finely chopped two tablespoons

mint leaves finely chopped one table spoon

turmeric powder a pinch

salt to taste

oil for frying

chilly powder

dhania powder each one teaspoon

sugar one teaspoon

cinnaman and bay leaves  a bit

cardamom big one number

cloves one number

garam masala powder 1/4 teaspoon

Take one cup cooked rice and put it aside.  Cut all the vegetables and fry them in oil till it is half done.  Keep it in a bowl.  Now make a fine paste with green chillies, one tablespoon coriander leaves, one tablespoon cut onions, ginger and 1/2 tomato.

Heat the remaining oil in a kadai  and first add the sugar. When the sugar starts to melt add the masala ingredients cinnamaman, cardamom, cloves and bay leave.  Add onion and saute for 2 minutes.  When the onion fried add the half fried vegetables, turmeric powder, chillie powder, dhania powder one by one.  Saute for 2 or 3 minutes more. Add the grinded paste and the remaining 1/2 tomato, add salt  and mix them well with all the vegetables,   and cover with a lid.  Wait till the vegetables cooked.  When the vegetables are done and the water in the gravy also drained add the cooked rice and mix well. Garnish with  the remaining coriander leaves and mint leaves. If you have bread in your home fry the bread in a tawa and cut it into small pieces and add them in the mixed vegetable fired rice.

Any Raitha of your choice will go with this. Cucumber, onion, tomato or carrot. Anything will go with this dish.
