1/2 tsp coriander-cumin powder
1/2 tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1 cups, thinly sliced onion
3. Add pasta and roast for 1 minute. Add rice and roast for another minute.
4. Roast the spices in a separate pan and crush them using mortar and pestle. Make sure they are not powdered.
2. Turmeric powder - if using - is added in a miniscule quantity as the color of this rice should be caramel brown and not yellow.
3. For richer flavor & non-vegan variation, use clarified butter/ghee for cooking.
