  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, beans, etc.)
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2-3 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 2-3 tablespoons cooking oil or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 4-5 whole black peppercorns
  • 4-5 cloves
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 1-inch cinnamon stick
  • 4-5 green cardamom pods
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste

  1. Rinse the Capital Classic Basmati Rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  2. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil or ghee over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds, black peppercorns, cloves, bay leaves, cinnamon stick, and green cardamom pods. Sauté for a minute until the spices release their aroma.
  3. Add the sliced onions and cook until they turn golden brown.
  4. Stir in the minced garlic, grated ginger, and chopped green chilies. Cook for another minute until the raw aroma disappears.
  5. Add the mixed vegetables and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
  6. Now, add the soaked and drained Capital Classic Basmati Rice to the pot. Gently mix the rice with the vegetables and spices to coat each grain.
  7. Pour in 2 cups of water, add turmeric powder, garam masala, and season with salt. Stir well.
  8. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked and the water is absorbed.
