Instructions
  1. Wash samak ke chawal. Soak in a small amount of water. Meanwhile heat ghee in a pan or kadhai. Fry cashew nuts till golden brown. In the same ghee fry almond slivers till golden brown. Keep the flame low all the time. On taking out almond slivers, add cumin seeds in the same ghee. When cumin starts to splutter, add all the dry spices. Then add chopped green chillies, and ginger. After that add curry leaves and then diced potatoes. Fry potatoes for two-three minutes. Add rock salt to taste. Cook potatoes covered on low flame for five minutes.
  2. Open the lid. Add soaked samak ke chawal. Fry for two-three minutes. Then add three cups water and adjust salt. Also, add half of the fried cashew nuts and almond slivers. Cook covered for five minutes on low flame.
  3. Open the lid after five minutes. The samak would have absorbed most of the water. Do not dry too much as samak will absorb more water gradually, and may become too dry. Now add lemon juice. Decorate with fried cashews and almond slivers. Also, add chopped coriander leaves/cilantro. serve hot.
Recipe Notes
  • Do not dry the pulao too much, as Samak¬†absorbs water with time and the pulao will become too dry after some time.
  • Prepare the rice just before the time you want to eat it. It tastes the best when freshly made.
