Ajwaini Tadka pulav

Some of the strong flavors are coming together in this recipe. As the title says, the basic seasoning or the tadka for this pulav is ajwain or the carom seeds,and nothing else!

Typically, the tadka consists of cumin seeds, Hing(asafoetida) turmeric and such. But here, in this recipe I have not added anything except a teaspoon of Ajwain. I could not believe the dens flavor of ajwain once the dish was done.

Now, this dish may not be for all. because, I know, many people hate Ajwain. But for those who Love them, like me, you are in for a treat.

I love ajwain in many cases, like parathas, masala buttermilk, pakodas etc. So here is another dish with Ajwain.

Along with Ajwain, the pulav also have other usual strong flavors of ginger-garlic paste and  garam masala.

What we need:
2 cups of cooked Basmati rice

1 cup of mixed vegetables

1 tomato sliced

1 onion sliced

3 tbsp oil

1 tsp ajwain

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1 tsp red chilli powder

salt.

Ajwain seeds

Method:

In a pan heat oil and add the Ajwain

once ajwain crackles, add the onions, tomatoes and mixed vegetables. Add Ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes until the raw flavor is gone and then add salt

next add the spices and fry until the oil separates

turn off the flame.

Add the cooked rice to the vegetables and mix well. adjust salt.
