  • Add rice to a medium-deep saucepan and fill it with water until the rice is completely covered.
  • Wash the rice by gently rubbing them with your fingers to dislodge any dirt and starch.
  • Change the water couple of times till the water runs clear.
  • Drain the water and add 5 cups of water to the rice. Let the rice soak for 30 minutes.
  • Drain the rice and set it aside.
  • Place a wok/kadhai over medium-high heat and add ghee.
  • Once the ghee is hot, add cumin seeds and once it starts sizzling, add green chilies, bay leaves, and cinnamon stick. Fry it for about 10-15 seconds and then add rice.
  • Saute the rice for about 1-2 minutes before adding salt and 4 cups water
  • In approximately 6-8 minutes, the water will start to boil and evaporate from the surface. When craters appear, cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and turn down the heat to the lowest setting and cook for another 5 minutes and turn off the heat.
  • Open the lid and let the steam escape.
  • Resting the rice: Cover the saucepan and let the rice rest undisturbed for 5 minutes – this allows the steam coming out of the rice to redistribute and allows all the layers of the rice to evenly cook.
  • Wait for 5 minutes and then fluff the rice gently with a fork and sprinkle chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot.
