Avocado-Kasoori Methi Rice / Avocado Rice


This is another dish that I prepared with Avocado.It's obvious that I intend to make one pot dishes on the weekend and as a part of it I tried this delicious and tasty avocado rice.This is a very delicious,healthy and easy to make rice.

Here is how I made this rice-----------------


Main Ingredients :
-----------------------
Raw Rice..........................2cups(uncooked)
Ripe Avocado...................1(pitted and scooped)
Kasoori Methi...................1/4cup
Red Onion.........................1(small ,diced)

Seasoning Ingredients :
-----------------------------
Canola Oil...............................1.5tbsp
Bay Leaves..............................2
Cinnamon Sticks......................2(small)
Cardamom..............................4
Cumin Seeds...........................2tsp
Lemon Juice............................1tbsp
Black Pepper Powder.............1.5tsp
Pulav Masala Powder..............2tsp
Salt.........................................to taste

Garnish :
---------------
Cilantro...........................few leaves(finely chopped)
Lemon Juice....................for drizzling on the rice for flavor(optional)

Preparartion :
-----------------
Cook the rice and keep it aside to cool down.Now take the scooped avocado flesh into a bowl and mash it.


Once the avocado is mashed, add little salt ,black pepper and lemon juice to it and mix well.Keep it aside.


Now place a pan on medium high heat and add oil.Once the oil is hot add cumin seeds,bay leaves,cinnamon sticks,nutmeg and fry for a minute.Once they start to turn golden add kasoori methi  leaves and fry for a minute.

Now add diced red onions and turmeric to the pan and fry for 2 more minutes or till the onions are translucent.

Once the onions are done, now add pulav masala powder and stir well.


Now add the avocado mix that we kept ready to the pan and mix in well till the mashed avocado blends in well with the ingredients in the pan.Cook for just 2 minutes( not more than that,we do not want to fry the avocado).

Once the avocado mix blend in well add salt and cilantro to the mix and stir.(Remeber that we added salt to the mashed avocado so do not add more now).


 Now add the cooked rice to this flavored avocado mix and mix the rice well so that all the flavors blend in and garnish with cilantro.


Yummy and delicious Avocado-Kasoori Methi Rice is ready to serve.
