To begin making the Spiced Onion Pulao Recipe, wash the rice thoroughly, and drain off all the excess water using a strainer.
Now pat dry the rice on an absorbent paper.
Heat a kadai, on medium-low flame, and dry roast the rice for about 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously. We are not looking for any colour here.
Turn off the flame and set aside.
Heat a pressure cooker with ghee on medium flame, into the cooker add the whole spices – bay leaves, cloves and cinnamon and allow them to sizzle.
Once the spices sizzle, add the onions, ginger and garlic and saute until the onions have softened
Now add the slit green chillies, chopped tomatoes and saute until the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
Once soft, mash the tomatoes slightly with the back of the ladle.
Finally add in the dry roasted rice, 2 cups of water, salt to taste and close the pressure cooker.
Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles and turn off the heat. Wait for the cooker to depressurise and then open the lid.
Once done, gently fluff with the Spiced Onion Pulao and transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve Spiced Onion Pulao Recipe along with Smoked Dhaba Dal Recipe or Bhune Pyaz Ka Gosht Recipe, Onion Raita Recipe and finish the meal with a dessert of Oats Apple Phirni Recipe.
