    Sambhar onions

    Hi Prathi & Chitvish,

    I used to fry sambhar onions (in full) in oil till they become translucent and then cook with other vegetables like peas, carrot, brinjals, drumstick etc. and add them to bisbelabath.

    Sambhar onions add extra flavor and taste to bisibelabath. Give it a try!

    Ginger - finely chopped - 1 inch
    Long grain rice - 2 cups - washed and set aside for atleast 1/2 an hour

    Grind to a Paste

    Corriander - Chopped and cleaned - 1 bunch
    Green Chillies - 8 to 10 (or as per the level of spiciness required)
    Grated fresh coconut - 1 small cup

    Cinnammon - an ich
    bay leaf - 1 (optional)
    Clove - 2


    Method

    1. Grind all the ingredients mentioned for the paste with little water and keep aside.
    2. the whole process can be done in an electric rice cooker or a pressure cooker.
    3. Heat the oil and ghee in the cooker, add jeera,bay leaf ,cinnamon and clove and allow spluttering.
    4. Now, add the chopped ginger and slit onions and fry till the onions turn translucent. Add the green peas at this stage.
    5. Now add the ground paste and saute for a minute.
    6. Add the washed and pre-soaked rice and fry for a minute more.
    7. Add water and salt and close the cooker.
    8. If u r using a pressure cooker 2 whistles might suffice. I personally prefer using rice cooker, as rice cooks without sticking.
    Serve hot with raitha.

    Hi Friends,

    As we got lots of Capsicum(bell peppers) in different colors almost throughout the year in the US, I used to make this rice variety very often. It is easy to make and my DH likes it a lot. So thought you gals would be interested to experiment it at your homes!

    Grated coconut - 2 tspn
    Red dry chillies - 3 nos
    Cashewnuts - 5
    Ghee - 1 tspn
    Capsicum (bell peppers - mostly green) - 3 nos - chopped into small peices
    (If you prefer choose green, red, yellow peppers each one - rice would turn out to be colorful [​IMG] )
    Basmati rice - 2 cups
    Salt - as required
    Lemon - 1/2

    Preparation method:

    1.Grind grated coconut, fried peanuts, cinnamon and red dry chillies in a blender to a smooth paste

    2. Cook the basmati rice with limited water like for making pulav

    3. In a pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds, urad dhal and channa dhal and let it splutter.

    4. Add the chopped capsicum and saute well. Mix the grind paste to it along with salt for taste. Saute well till the raw smell disappears.

    5. Add the above mix to the rice along with cashewnuts fried in a spoon of ghee. Mix well adding the lemon juice.
