How to Make Masala Rice in a jiffy

  • Heat oil in a skillet and add the cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and bay leaf and fry a while.
  • Add the onions and a little sugar (so the onions brown well) and saute till the onions are golden brown
  • Add the ginger and garlic paste and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add salt and the masala powders and stir.
  • Add the chopped chillies and tomato, and saute till you can see the oil separate. (You can add the optional ingredients now, if using.)
  • Add the beaten egg along with the cilantro into this mixture and keep stirring continuously till the egg scrambles and the mixture turns a little dry.
  • Add the rice gradually and mix all the ingredients well.
  • Turn off the heat. Mix in the ghee. Sprinkle the garam masala and serve hot.
