How to make it?
First grind all the ingredients that are to be ground into a fine paste and keep aside. Avoid adding too much water. You should stop with less than 2 tablespoon of water.
Next, heat oil ghee mix in a kadai. Add bay leaf, cinnamon and cloves. Saute for a minute. Now, add the onions and saute till pink and transparent.
Next, toss in the tomatoes and saute till oil separates from the mixture.
Now, add in the mushrooms and saute for 2 to 3 mins. They cook fast because they are tender.
Now, add the ground paste and saute for a minute. Not more than that cos you ll lose the flavours.
Now, add the soaked rice along with the water and salt and mix well.
Transfer to a rice cooker and cook.
Tastes yummy with simple onion raitha.
I served it for lunch with butter naan and kadai paneer.
