In a pan, take oil/ghee and let it heat. Once it’s hot, add chopped onions and garlic along with other solid spices – black cardamom, cumin, bay leaf, and give it a mix. Now add salt to the mixture along with some water. Mix it well.
After the water begins to boil, add rinsed basmati rice to it and mix well. Lower the gas stove’s flame and cover the pan with a lid. Let the rice cook for 15-20 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the chutney. Take a mixer jar and put coriander leaves, pudina leaves, ginger, garlic, chopped tomato, chopped onion, black salt and salt, and blend well. Add a bit of water if you feel the chutney is too thick. Taste it once to ensure the spice levels are according to your taste.
In a pan, add some butter and put some hing in it. Mix it well and now add the chutney to the pan. Give it a boil.
In the same pan, add the pulao and wait till the chutney water dries up. Then, mix the pulao gently in the chutney so that it’s coated nicely. Garnish with coriander leaves and slivered ginger. And voila! Your chutney pulao is ready to serve!
