Veg pulav


1 cup basmati rice (soaked for 1/2 hr in 2 cups water)
1 tsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion (chopped lengthwise)
Salt to taste
1/2 cup chopped vegetables (carrots, beans and peas)
Small piece of cinnamon
2 cloves
Few roasted cashews

Heat oil, add cumin seeds, cloves and cinnamon. When it splutters add onions and cook for a minute. Add the soaked rice after draining the water to a different vessel (not to be thrown). Fry for 2 minutes and then transfer it to a vessel for pressure cooking. Add the water that was used for soaking the rice and vegetables. Add salt and pressure cook for one or two whistles.

Mix well without breaking the cooked rice and garnish with roasted cashews. Serve hot with any spicy gravy of your choice or as it is for kids.
