Off On

  1. At first, soak 1 cup basmati rice for 10 min. Then wash the rice with the running water.

    Long grain basmati rice shall be used. If you do not have time to soak, boil more water in an open pot and cook rice. But soak rice as long as possible. It helps to cook the rice faster in closed pot.
  2. Now heat ghee in a non-stick kadai. Then add whole spices, cumin seeds and fry for 1 min.

    Use homemade or desi ghee for cooking. It gives a good aroma.
  3. When the aroma release, add cashew and kishmish. Fry for 2 min on low flame.

    Be quick, otherwise cashew kishmish will be burnt.
  4. Then add rice and fry for 1 min.

  5. Now add salt, sugar and mix well.

    Turn off the oven and check the rice. keep aside for 10 min before serving.
