Mushroom Ajwain Rice

If u need for a simple, quick,delicious at the same a flavourful rice dish, do try this mushroom ajwain rice, since i had some fresh mushrooms,i tried out this rice with mushrooms..U can surely use any sort of veggies for making this delicious rice..Ajwain gives a beautiful flavour to this rice and if u serve this rice with papads or with spicy potato fry,they tastes absolutely divine and nothing will beat this combination..This rice suits prefectly for a lunch box menu or for a get together party, even with a non vegetarian side dish am damn sure that this rice will be definitely a big hit..To spice this rice, i just used slit opened green chillies and store bought pav bhaji powder,both together turned out this rice even more delicious..Sending to my own event CWS-Ajwain seeds guest hosted by Kavita..

Mushroom Ajwain Rice

2cups Basmati rice (cooked)
2nos Onions (sliced lengthwise)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Garam masala powder
1tbsp Pav bhaji powder
1tsp Ajwain seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1cup Mushrooms (chopped as small chunks)
1/4cup Green peas (optional)
Salt
Oil
Few chopped mint leaves

Heat enough oil, fry the ajwain seeds and cumin seeds until they turns brown, add immediately the sliced onions, ginger garlic paste, sauté until the raw smell goes away..now add the slit opened green chillies, chopped mushrooms, green peas, cook everything in simmer along with garam masala powder, pav bhaji powder with enough salt until the veggies get well cooked and the oil gets separates..(u can add water if needed, i didnt added water and cooked everything in simmer)..Immediately add the already cooked basmati rice and toss gently until everything gets well mixed, finally add the chopped mint leaves and serve hot with papads or with any spicy side dish..

The idea of adding Pav bhaji powder is innovative and should be enriching the taste...
