Begin by washing the samak rice thoroughly and draining it.
In a pan, heat ghee over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and chopped green chillies, and sauté for a minute.
Add the washed samak rice and saute for a couple of minutes, ensuring the ghee coats the rice evenly.
Pour in the water, add a pinch of rock salt, and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat, cover the pan, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes. The rice should absorb the water and become fluffy.
Now, gently mix in the boiled and cubed potatoes and chopped peanuts. Continue to cook for a few more minutes.
Your delicious samak pulao is ready. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
