    Brown Rice Pulao Ingredients:
    1. Add water to 1 cup of brown rice. Wash 3-4 times. After washing, add plenty of water to the rice and let it soak for 1 hour. Rice will be ready to cook afterwards.
    2. Turn stove onto a medium flame. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, 1 tablespoon ghee, 1 bay leaf, 2 pieces of cinnamon, 4-5 cloves, 8-10 black pepper, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds to the pot. Let it splatter.
    3. Add 1 tablespoon cashews and saute for 30 seconds.
    4. Add the thinly sliced onion to the pot. Saute for 3-4 minutes or until the onion is translucent in color.
    5. Add ginger paste and mixed vegetables. Saute for 1 minute. Then, add salt to taste, red chili powder to taste, and 1 teaspoon of homemade garam masala. Combine everything.
    6. Add 1 tablespoon of soaked raisins. Mix well.
    7. Then, add 2 cups of water and the drained rice. Stir well. Boil for 2 minutes. Cover and cook the pot for another 10 minutes. Rice will still have water and it won't be fully cooked yet. Cover again and lower the flame. Let it cook for another 10 minutes. The rice should have no more moisture left. It will be well cooked but not sticky or mushy. Turn off the heat and serve the pulao.
