Pressure cook rice and cool down to make sure that the rice grains are separate. I cooked rice in 1: 1 & ¼ ratio with water, up to 3 whistles.
Chop tomato finely and slice onions length wise.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan with oil and add the tempering items given in order.
Then add the onions and fry till transparent and add the ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell goes off.
Add the chopped tomatoes and add enough salt that is required for the rice and cook in slow flame, till it becomes mushy. (6-8 min)
Grind the ingredients under the To Grind table with little water and add it to the cooking tomatoes and mix well.
¼ cup Coconut, 8 Small onion, 1 Cinnamon, 1 Cardamom, 5 Green chillies, 1 Cloves
Add some oil or ghee to make it cook easy.
Cook in low flame till you get a nice aroma.
Mix this to the cooked cooled rice carefully and add the chopped coriander leaves if desired.
