  • Salt to taste
Method of preparation :
  • Heat oil in a non stick deep pan / rice cooker 
  • Add whole garam masala once it gets golden brown add green chillies and onions finely chopped and little salt
  • As onions turn translucent add turmeric, ginger and garlic paste and fry for about a min

  • Now add water and curd and mix well, bring this to boil check taste add more salt if required.
  • When the water is boiling add Rice and close lid. Leave it for 10 to 12 min in medium flame and remove. 
  • Keep it closed for another 5 min before you serve / pack.
