Microwave Cashew Rice

I never tried cooking rice in microwave, after googling and reading loads of rice dishes been prepared in microwave pulled me really to try out this simple cashew rice...this cashew rice ressembles very much in between jeera rice and ghee rice, thought of preparing simple jeera rice i soaked rice for 15 minutes and started preparing the spices etc, but finally i added a cup of store bought coconut milk and slit opened green chillies and few cashew nuts while cooking, which made this rice more delicious than wat i tried to do..I was very happy to prepare this rice through microwave coz its really needs almost 20 minutes to prepare..we had this cashew rice with paneer jalfrezi for our sterday's lunch, just loved it!!!!..My last entry to MEC-Nuts guest hosted by Mythreyee of Paajaka, event by Srivalli also to CFK-Rice guest hosted by Trupti of Recipe Center, event by Sharmi n Lets Go Nuts guest hosted by Poornima, event by Aquadaze...


1cup Basmati Rice
1cup Coconut milk
1cup Water
1tsp Cumin seeds
20nos Cashew pieces
3tbsp Ghee
1no Onion (chopped)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Wash and soak the rice with coconut milk and water for 15 minutes, take a microwave bowl, add the ghee, cashew pieces and jeera and microwave for 1 minutes, now add the chopped onion,ginger garlic paste, slit opened green chillies and cook again for 1 minutes, stir in between and cook again for two more minute...add now the soaked rice along with water&coconut milk and with enough salt, stir everything and microwave for 15 minutes..stir in between every 5 minutes, while the last 5 minutes make sure the rice is cooked r not, if not u can cook as ur need...mine took 20 minutes...add the coriander leaves and serve hot!

Prefect with Paneer jalfrezi !! also sending to WYF-Quick Meal by EC of Simple Indian Food..
