Coriander Mint Rice

My mom is an expert in making mint rice. This is a regular in our house as my dad and I love it.
Mint Rice does bring some good memories of my college days when I used to take it for lunch and my friends would finish it off leaving a small portion for me:)

I am sending this to Srivalli's Rice mela

Ingredients:
Basmathi Rice-1 cup uncooked
Ghee-1tbsp
Oil-1 tbsp

To tamper:
Cloves-3
Cinnamon-an inch stick
Bay leaf-1
Star anise-1
Jeera-1 tsp

To grind:
Mint leaves-1/2 bunch
Coriander leaves-1/2 cup
Onion chopped-1 cup
Garlic cloves(optional)-2
Green chilli-1
Red chilli-1
Salt
Hing
Tamarind-a small piece

Method:
Rinse and soak basmathi rice in water for 15 minutes and cook with 2 cups of water. Set aside.
Grind the ingredients without adding water to a nice paste.
Heat oil and ghee in a pan and tamper with the above mentioned ingredients and add the ground paste. Simmer and cover. When the paste becomes thick and raw smell goes off(15 minutes approx), switch off the gas and mix the paste with rice. Serve with raitha and chips.
