Roasted cumin flavoured with rice pilaf. A simple rice dish that pairs well with a number of gravies and curries.
Once the pressure releases, discard the bay leaf, cloves and cinnamon stick from the rice. Transfer it to a bowl and fluff it up. Add ½ tablespoon oil or ghee and mix it well without breaking the rice grains. Allow it to cool. (2)
Heat 2 tablespoon oil or ghee in a pan over medium heat. Once the ghee is hot, add the cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Once they start spluttering, add the cashews and stir it until it starts turning golden brown. At this point turn off the flame and immediately add the curry leaves and cumin-pepper powder. (3)
