Spice Rice

  1. Parboil 2 cups of Tastic rice in salted water till a bit soft but still firm.
  2. Make a Vaghar. (Vaghar isΒ a technique of pan-frying spices before adding them to your dish. In English, this would be called β€œtempering.” The frying of the spices toasts them and really brings out the aromatics. )
  3. Braize a small onion in Butter or ghee until transparent.
  4. Add grated carrot and all of the green/red & yellow peppers as well as the mushrooms & cook until the water evaporates, then add the garlic, spice for rice,Β Aromat, and black pepper and braise it for a minute then add the rice and mix it well and add enough water to just cover it.
  5. Bring to a boil then lower it to low heat and steam until done but not too dry that the rice stick to the pot, there must still be some moisture left.
