Method:
Wash and soak basmati rice in 5cups of water. Add 1tbsp of salt and cook until 80% done. Take a large skillet and heat 2tbsp of oil and 1tbsp of butter. Then add cumin seeds and when they start splattering add Clove, cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaf. Add onion, soy chunks and green chili cook till they become transparent. Add ginger garlic paste and turmeric. When they are well cooked, add all the vegetables and saute them. Cover the skillet and cook till all vegetables are 70% cooked. Then add yogurt/curd, cumin powder, coriander powder & garam masala. Mix them all and cook well. Add salt to taste and cook till all vegetables are cooked well. Finally add cilantro and mint leaves and cook till raw flavor goes away.
