Instructions Boil 10 cups of water. Wash, drain and soak the rice for 30 mins. Drain it in a colander. Slice an onion finely. Saute it in 1 tsp ghee (in a deep and wide non stick vessel) until translucent. Heat one more tsp of ghee in it. Add the rice. Use a wooden spatula and gently roast the rice until its color changes to light pink and the grains separate. (Handle rice with care) Add a piece of cinnamon to the rice. Pour the boiling water and enough salt. Cover and cook. Meanwhile, slice the 1/2 onion finely, mix it with a pinch of salt and sugar and fry it in ghee. Fry nuts and kismis. Drain the rice when it is 90% cooked. Toss the rice in the colander, so that all water is drained. Heat 1 - 2 tsp ghee in the non stick vessel and twirl it. Spread the cooked rice uniformly (but do not press) and heat on low flame for 2 - 3 mins while gently turning the rice with a wooden spatula. Garnish it with fried onion and nuts. :- A good combination with naadan parippu curry, chicken fry and pappadam. :- Extra Calories can be cut down if garnishing is avoided.
