Add the cheese cubes and mix carefully. Switch off the heat after a minute.

  5. In a pan, spread a layer of rice (half of the cooked rice) evenly on the bottom. Spoon in the vegetable mixture evenly. Spread the remaining rice on top. Cover the pan with an aluminium foil or a tight fitting lid. Place the pan on top of a heat diffuser or tawa and cook on low heat for 15 minutes. Garnish with fried onions, toasted cashew nuts, raisins and chopped leaves. Serve hot with raita and pickle.

    I made this, but the rice became like a paste and the entire dish was green instead of yellow like yours. Any tips to avoid this?

    Hi Jennifer,

    The dish will be greenish in colour as the paste is green is colour. The rice became a paste as it was overcooked. Make sure the rice is just about 3/4th cooked. It will get fully done when we cook on “Dum”.
