Tindora Rice

Rice and Tindora vegetable are cooked separately and then mixed together.

Tindora Vegetable:

15 fresh Tindoras
2 large onions – sliced [1/4 inch thick]

1/2 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Garam masala

1/3 Cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro – chopped.

Preparation for Tindora:
Slice off about 1/8 inch from both ends.
Then cut each Tindoras, lengthwise, into four equal parts.

3 Cups Basmati rice.[ or a long grain rice]

2 Cinnamon sticks [each 2 inch long]
10 Whole Cloves
12 crushed cardamom seeds
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon salt

Cook rice with water adding cloves, cinnamon sticks, crushed cardamom, butter, and salt.

Simultaneously you can prepare Tindora veggie mix.

Method for Tindora:
Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium high heat, for a minute.
Add sliced onions, then turmeric to the pan and give a good stir.
Continue to stir occasionally until the onions start to turn light brown.
Add Chilli powder, garam masala. Stir for half a minute.
Add sliced Tindoras and salt. Stir the ingredients well.
Cover the pan and continue to cook the ingredients for another 2 minutes. Remove the cover.
You will see oil being released from the ingredients in the pan.
Add chopped cilantro. Stir the ingredients well.

Mix Rice with Tindora:
Now add cooked rice to the Tindoras mixture and mix it well.
Place the rice into a serving ball.

Serves 6.

Rinse rice 2/3 times to remove starch. That also helps separate rice grains when cooked.
