This is a very basic rice recipe with caramelized onions and my entry for this week's A-Z Indian Vegetables hosted by Nupur (@ one hot stove).
Rice - 2 cups, cooked
Onions - 2 large, thinly sliced
Tomato puree - 2 tbsp
Peas - 1/4 cup
Red Chili powder - 1tsp
Garam Masala - 1tsp
Bay leaves - 2
Cloves - 4
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
- Heat 2tsp oil in a pan, add bay leaves, cloves and cumin seeds, saute for 30 seconds.
- Add onions, fry on medium heat for about 20-25 minutes. Occasionally baby sitting the onions to make sure that they don't burn.
- After the onions turn golden brown and caramelized , add tomato puree and peas (boiled), cook for 2 minutes. Add chili powder, garam masala and salt, cook for about 5 more minutes.
- Mix rice into onion mixture, adjust seasoning and serve hot as is or with a curry/raita on the side.
