Cook the rice adding sufficient water, Coconut Oil and salt. See that it’s not over cooked. The rice should be firm after cooking. Oil is added so that the rice doesn’t stick together. Once ready drain and keep aside.

Take a deep and big cooking pot or pan; it should be big enough to hold all the rice and vegetables. Pour ghee; add half of the chopped onion and the vegetables in, sauté for few minutes.
