Brown Rice Biryani Pulao #BM38

For the third week we are making rice with a twist. πŸ™‚

Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 38

I am a brown rice fan and I make it more often than ever. Recently I picked up Roopak’s Biryani Rice spice blend. It just made the life so simple. It had everything that I used to collect meticulously before making the biryani. πŸ™‚

You shall need:

1 cup… Brown rice (Soaked for about 4 hours)

1.5 cup… Water

1/2 cup… Peas

1/3 cup… Groundnuts

1 tbsp… Biryani masala

2 tbsp… Ghee

2 tsp… jeera/cumin seeds

Salt and red chilly powder to taste

1 tsp… turmeric powder

Method:

  • In a pressure cooker, add the ghee and let it get nice and hot.
  • Now add the biryani masala and cumin seeds.
  • Once the cumin splutters,
  • add the peas, turmeric, red chilly powder, salt and the rice.
  • Mix them well.
  • Add water and let it pressure cook for 4-5 whistles.
  • In case your brown rice variety does not cook in 1.5 cup water (based on past experience), feel free to add another half a cup.
  • Serve hot or pack for lunch at work. πŸ™‚
