Potato Rice

This is a simple form of vegetarian potato rice. A very easy recipe and a healthy one too. You can serve this rice with curd and pickle.

Ingredients :

1. Long grain basmati rice- 1 cup
2. Potato- 1 large
3. Broccoli- 1/2 cup
4. Peas- 1/2 cup
5. Salt to taste
6. Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
7. Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
8. Green chilly- 2
9. Hing (asafoetida)- 1/4 tsp
10. Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
11. Bhuna garam masala- 1/4 tsp
12. Oil

Procedure :

Soak the rice in water for half an hour and meanwhile chop the potato into small pieces. Boil the broccoli in water for 4 to 5 minutes. Heat 2 tbs oil in a kadhayi and fry the potato. Add cumin seeds and chopped green chilly. Fry it for 3 to 4 minutes and add broccoli , turmeric , cumin powder , hing , garam masala , salt and peas. Let all the masala get dried up a little. Add a little water and cover the kadhayi so that the potatoes get cooked. When the potatoes are done , remove the cover of the kadhayi and let the water evaporate.
Heat a deep bottom kadhayi and add 1 tsp oil to it. Drain the water from the rice and fry the rice for a minute. Add water up to the level of the rice and add a pinch of salt. Cover the kadhayi and let the rice get cooked. When the rice is done , drain the excess water from it and add it to the potato mixture. Mix everything lightly so that the rice grains do not break. Your healthy potato rice is ready to be served.
