Step 1
Cook the Basmati Rice. Use a Rice Cooker or a Pressure Cooker so that the rice does not turn out mushy or too dry. If you use a pressure cooker, add 1 & 1/4 cups of water for 3/4 cup of rice. You can use the Recipe at Cooking Rice, but reduce the water at first, add more as needed.
Step 2
Add oil to a saute/fry pan. When hot, add cloves, cardamom and bay leaves. Stir fry for 2 minutes.
Step 3
Add the frozen carrot and peas to the pan. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook for 4 minutes or until carrot is cooked but firm. Keep stirring every 30 seconds.
Step 4
Add the cooked rice to the mixture. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Use a flat turner, and turn the mixture around. Mix thoroughly without mashing the contents.
Step 5
Serve hot.
