Dry peas - a handful

Coconut - 2 tbsp
Green chillies - 2-3
Cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaves - each 1 small piece
Garlic - 2-3 pods
Ginger - a small piece

Soak the dry peas overnight. Grind together coconut, green chillies, cinnamon, cardamom, garlic, ginger and 1 tbsp chopped onions into a fine paste. Heat oil / ghee in a pressure cooker. Add cumin seeds, bay leaves and chopped onions. Fry for few minutes.

Add the soaked peas and the grounded paste. Fry for another 5 min. Wash the basmathi rice well and add to the above. Mix well. Add required salt and water. I added 1:1 1/2 ratio. Allow 2 whistles. Fry cashews in ghee and add to the rice. Serve hot with raitha.
