SMALL POTATO PULAO


I got this idea from Mrs. Mallika Badrinath's book " 100 varieties of rice".I just changed it to my way by changing the method.

Ingredients

Small potatoes-20-25ea
Onion-2 ea (sliced)
Cumin seed-1 tsp
Cloves-4 ea
Cardamom-2-4 ea
Bay leaves-3-4 ea
Oil-1 tbsp
Tomato puree-1 cup ( I used fresh tomato juice)
Turmeric powder-2 tsp
Yoghurt-1 cup
Cilantro-1 bunch
Basmati rice-2 cup (soaked min 15-30mins)
Turmeric powder-1 tsp

To grind

Coriander seed-2 tsp
Red chilles-3 ea (acc to taste)
G.chilles-2 ea (Acc to taste)
Ginger-2”
Cloves- 4 pod
Grated coconut-3-4 tbsp

Method
  • Boil the potatoes & remove skin.
  • Spike with a fork & deep fry until golden brown.
  • Boil the rice with tomato puree, turmeric powder,salt & keep it aside.
  • Grind fresh cilantro to a fine paste & add to the yoghurt.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, cloves,bay leaves,cardamom,sliced onion & sauté few mins.
  • Add ground masala paste,yoghut mix & fried potatoes.
  • Cook until all raw flovours extracts & add cooked rice & mix well.
  • Serve hot with raithas.
