    8. Wash and soak rice for 20 minutes. Drain.
    9. Slice fresh red chili into small roundels.
    10. Heat ghee in a pan. Although you could use butter, but ghee makes the Rice very aromatic.

    13. In another pan heat oil, add the mustard seeds, allow to pop.

    16. Now add the spice mixture to the cooked tomatoes along-with coriander leaves.
    17. Add the cooked rice to the tomatoes, mix well and enjoy.
