Tehri is a one pot meal cooked with rice and vegetables together and served with any kind of raita.This recipe is one way you can include daily vegetables in a one pot meal.The choices are unlimited of the vegetables you can include in this recipe or let us put it this way Ã¢â‚¬â€œ sky is the limit.I made this with the vegetables I had.The result is such a wonderful rice recipe which can be had as a lunch or dinner,included in your daily lunchbox/tiffin recipes,for picnics and I would suggest even parties!_x000D_
This recipe can be had with any kind of a raita for accompaniment.I personally prefer either a mixed fruit or boondi raita but again here the choices are endless.It can also be teamed up with any kind of spicy pickle like Red Chili,Green Chili or Lime or any kind of Chutney/Murabba for a truly ethereal experience!_x000D_
This recipe is made the Stir - Fry way.
Cook the rice till done.Spread on a plate to cool.
Blanch (boil in salted water) all the vegetables for 4-5 minutes.Drain and keep aside to cool.
Heat the Oil in a pan and crackle the Cumin seeds.Add the Onions and salute till translucent.Add the blanched vegetables and salt,chill powder,turmeric,cumin,the mace,nutmeg and cardamom powders and mint.Stir to mix and saut for 5-7 minutes.Add the cream.Mix well to amalgamate all the vegetables in the rich cream.
Now very gently mix the rice into the prepared masala.Ensure that all the masala coats all of the rice.Sprinkle the coriander leaves on top.
Close the pan and let it cook on the lowest heat for 2 minutes then take off heat.Serve hot with any Raita or pickle of your choice.
Can also be made with leftover rice.If refrigerated,take out the rice 1 hour before making the Tehri and let it come to room temperature.Make the recipe as usual.No need to heat the rice again.
