All my stress since morning has been relieved, the moment my daughter got selected in pre-competitive swimming program. Wanted to treat her with healthy dinner, decided to make this recipe which I was planning to make ever since I saw in my friend Sridevi's blog (Sreelu's Tasty Travels). Prepared this yummy, healthy recipe with a variation of using brown rice and excluded vegetables.
Here is the original recipe.
Here is my version:
1 cup of Brown Rice (Soak in water for 30 mts)
1 cup of sprouted beans (Soaked in water for 30 mts)
1 small sized onion (Chopped)
1tsp ginger garlic paste
1tbsp nuts( I used sliced almonds, cashews)
1/4inch cinnamon stick
10 mint leaves (finely chopped)
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp Pulav masala
red chili powder (Adjust as per your spice level) -- Optional
Extra virgin olive oil
In a pan add oil, once oil is hot add cloves, cinnamon stick, nuts, bay leaf. Once nuts turn golden color add onions, ginger garlic paste. Once onions turn golden color add pilaf masala, chopped mint, red chili powder.
Once onions cooked in spices add lentils, rice, salt and mix well.
Add water (1Cup of rice 1 -1/2 cups of water) and cover the lid and pressure cook for 6 whistles or use electric cooker.
Healthy and yummy rice is ready to be served.
