Rice and Broccoli Pilaf
This Rice and Broccoli Pulao/Pilaf is not only good for health, but also has a great flavor due to Broccoli and Indian spices! It is effortless to prepare and tastes divine with that bowl of yogurt.
- 1 cup Basmati Rice
- 1 cup Broccoli minced
- 1 inch ginger minced
- 2-3 teaspoon salt per taste
- 1 cup water for soaking and to be rinsed
- 2 tbsp Ghee or plant-based oil
- 1 green chili Optional, I use Serrano pepper
Soak Rice in water for an hour. You may skip this step and just rinse with water a few times. If you haven't soaked the rice, the water required for cooking is 1.25 cups.
Put the Instant Pot in Saute Mode and add Ghee/Oil.
When "Hot," cut the Chili into two halves and add. Add Bay leaves and cloves.
Add broccoli-ginger mix and stir for a minute.
Rinse the water from soaked rice, add to the pot and stir for a couple of minutes.
Add water, salt and close the lid in sealed mode.
Set the Instant Pot to the "Rice" mode. STOVETOP: For cooking with a pressure cooker on a stovetop, one whistle should work fine.
Once done, let the pressure release naturally.
Serve hot with yogurt, Hummus, Veggies, lentils, or chutney of your choice.
