  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 4 cups various vegetables of choice, chopped (peas, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, potatoes)
  • 2 cups rice
  • 4 cups water
  • salt to taste


Heat oil in a pot, add cumin seeds and cook for 2 minutes. Add green chilis, onion and turmeric and sauté for 2 minutes. Add chopped vegetables and sauté until slightly fried. Add rice, salt, and water. Cook until rice and vegetables are cooked and water completely absorbed (about 20 minutes).
