Masala bhaat

Hello friends! Today I have come with a rice dish called masala bhaat. It is mostly a maharashtrian dish but it has its own varieties. Bhaat means rice and masala means mix of vegetables and spices. So lets begin cooking this.
masala bhaat,

  • 250gms rice
  • 100ml ghee or oil
  • 1tbsp jeera/cumin seeds
  • 2 bay leaves/tejpatta
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5-6 peppercorn
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1tsp turmeric powder
  • 1tbsp red chilly powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 brinjal
  • 1 tomato
  • 2-3 tbsp peas
  • salt to taste
  • coriander leaves to garnish

Wash and soak rice. Heat ghee or oil and add whole spices. Then add chopped onion. Saute it till it turns translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and again saute for a min. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder and coriander powder. Mix well. Chop tomato and brinjal into small cubes and add it to the mixture along with peas.  Now add salt and mix again. Add rice and water enough for rice and vegetables to cook. 

Your masala bhaat is done. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve it hot with raita of your choice.

The version of masala bhaat as I said varies and it is supposed to be spicy but for our taste I have still reduced the quantity of masalas.
