Pulaos are famous north indian rice dishes. Muttaicose is one of our fav Vegetables. At any time they will be available at my fridge. I got this recipe from my Mother-in law and tried for a small party. It was a super hit. A mild rice with any gravy of veg or non-veg would be a best combination for this. My rice got little mashed up coz of excess water added while cooking.
|Basmati Rice||2 cups|
|Garam masala||1/4 tsp|
|Coconut Milk||1 cup|
|Water||2 1/4 cups|
Soak basmati rice for 10 min. If soaked more than 10 minutes reduce water added for cooking else rice wouldn’t be separated. Extract 1 cup of coconut milk from 1/2 cup of coconut. Slice cabbage into very thin length wise piece. Chop Green Chili in to very fine pieces. Chop onion length wise.
In a pressure cooker add oil, cinnamon, Cloves, Rice, Grama Masala, Salt – little and Turmeric. Fry this till moisture from rice is evaporated. Add the coconut milk, water 2 1/4 cups and pressure cook. After rice is cooked, add ghee and stir with thin handle of spatula to avoid breaking the rice.
In an another pan, heat ghee. When hot add onion,green chili, salt and fry till onion is translucent. Add cabbage and fry till it is half cooked. Add this to the cooked rice, squeeze the lemon and stir gently to mix well.
