Now, take a pan and heat ghee in it. Pour the soaked rice and sauté for five minutes.
Remove the fried rice from the stove and keep aside.
Take a separate pan and put 2 tablespoons of ghee in it. Add cinnamon stick, cloves and nutmeg powder to the heated ghee.
Sauté them for a while and then add the chopped onion. Fry until the onions turn translucent. Now, add the ginger –garlic paste and sauté for another two minutes.
Add the tomatoes and fry till they soften. In the tomato mix, add potatoes and pudina paste and saute for 8 to 10 minutes.
Now, pour 3 cups of water in the mixture. Bring the water to boil and then add rice and salt.
Mix well and pressure cook. Remove from the flame after two whistles.
Serve hot Pudina Rice with raita.
