Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Rice – 2 cups
  2. Almonds – ¼ cup
  3. Cashewnuts – ¼ cup
  4. Walnuts – ¼ cup
  5. Pine nuts – ¼ cup
  6. Pistachios – ¼ cup
  7. Saffron – a pinch dissolved in warm milk
  8. Salt – to season
  9. Ghee – 2 tbsp
  10. Vegetable oil – 1 tbsp.

Instructions

  1. Wash the rice 3-4 times with plenty of water. Soak the rice for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking. For 2 cups rice, boil 6 cups of water, season with salt and add the rice. Cook on high heat till the rice is 3/4th done. Add more water
  2. While the rice is cooking, blanch the almonds and pistachios to remove the skin easily. (Blanching the pistachios in salted water helps to retain the green colour of the nut). Chop all the nuts roughly.
  3. Once the rice has drained well, heat oil and ghee in a pan and add all the nuts in together. Saute on low to medium heat for 2-3 minutes taking care not to burn the nuts.
  4. Add the saffron soaked in milk and cook for a few minutes. Add the rice and mix well to combine. Since the rice is cooked with salt, you wouldn’t really need extra salt, but do taste and season more if required.
  5. Serve hot with accompaniment of choice.
