Mixed Vegetable Rice

Vegetable rice is a fascinating and flavored rice with fine veggie like carrot, potato, peas, corn etc.  I am a very big fan of mixed rice like tamarind rice, coconut rice, lemon rice, pulao’s etc. yesterday I was thinking of preparing this kind of recipe. Pre preparation is the must for all the rice recipes, If we miss a single ingredients the taste changes, hope everyone will agree with this.
                   Here for this vegetable rice I omitted garam masala. Cos if garam masala is added then it will change to biriyani type. Here we go in to the recipe and lets all enjoy the flavor of vegetables. 

Ingredients
Rice (raw rice or Basmathi rice) – 1 ½ cup (semi cooked)
Vegetables – 1 - 1½ cup (peas, potato,beans, carrot, corn and cauliflower)(cut vegetables in 1 inch thickness)
Red chili powder – 1 ½ tsp
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Onion- 2no (chopped finely)
Tomato – 2 no
Green chili – 2 no (slitted)
Coriander leaves few (finely chopped)
Oil – 3tbsp
Salt to taste
Sour curd – 1 tbsp
Jeera for seasoning
Method
Cook rice with 2 cup of water and little salt in rice cooker and spread it in a wide plate and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add jeera , onion, sauté for 2min. till it becomes brown. Add red chili powder , salt and add veggies. Mix it well. Then add tomatoes, curd and ginger garlic paste, coriander leaves. Mix well and add little water. 

Cook in sim till the mixture becomes thick. When oil leaves the mixture and becomes thick. Then switch off the flame. Now mix the rice with the vegetable mass. Sprinkle little water and close the container. Keep in sim for 2min.Then serve hot .
