Here are the Ingredients & Steps for making a Turmeric Rice -
Start with cooking the rice. Before cooking it, wash the rice properly 2-3 times until the water comes clean. After three whistles, let the rice cool down.
Then in a medium pan, add coconut oil. Let it heat on medium flame. Once it heats up slightly, add the cumin seeds, small pinch of asafoetida, bay leaf and chillies.
Once it gives off an aroma, add the chopped onion and mixture of ginger & garlic. Saute them until they turn soft. Then add the chopped carrots and saute again.
Once the mixture gets fragrant and cooked, add the rice and 1 & ½ tsps of Jivana Turmeric. Mix the ingredients well until the rice is coated yellow from turmeric.
Then add the salt as required. Mix it again. Cover the mixture and let it cook for 5 minutes.
Take off the flame and garnish with coriander leaves. And your Turmeric Rice is ready!
