  • Add green chilli paste, pepper powder and salt.
  • Lastly, add the boiled rice to the vegetables and mix well.
  • Serve this with vegetable kurma and tomato sauce.
  • For the kurma:
  • Heat oil in a pressure pan and add seasoning to it.

  • Add ginger-garlic paste, green-chilli paste, garam masala powder, red chilli powder, salt and saute it.
