Ingredients:
Basmati rice -2 cups
coconut milk (thick) -2 cups
water -2 cups
big onion -1
green chillies-5
curry leaves-few
garlic cloves-(optional)
carrot,peas,beans, -1/2 cup(optional)
cinnamon sticks-1
cloves-5 to 6
bay leaves-4

cashew nuts-1/4 cup(optional)
garam masala-1/4 tsp
butter / ghee/vegetable oil-2tsp

Method:
first wash the rice ,drain the water.then add coconut milk and water to the rice keep in electric rice cooker or pressure cooker.put a side.now chop the chillies,onions, carrots,beans .heat the butter or ghee in a skillet and add cloves,bay leaves,cardamom,cinnamon stick , cashew nuts saute for till cashe turns into light golden color.then green chillies,onions,carrots,beans,peas ,curry leaves,saute till they leaves raw smell.
then add garam masala,salt.saute for few minutes.
mean time turn on the cooker.if using pressure cooker don't put lid.when the rice starts cooking,,
add the above fried ingredients.
another way is also used to cook,when the ingredients done add rice saute for few mins then add coconut milk and water.but in this process the rice may broke.so I like to add fried ingredients to the rice when it cooking.
put the lid and cook till it change into warm mode.if using pressure cooker turn off after 3 whistles.
sweet and spicy coconut milk rice ready. serve when it hot.eat with any gravy,raita.
also u can use 4 cups of coconut milk then no need to add water.then it will give more sweetness.
