Ingredients :

  1. Basmati rice-1 cup
  2. Sugar-1/2 cup or according to your taste
  3. Orange food color-1/4 ts( dissolve in 2 Tbs water)
  4. Ghee-2 Tbs

  8. Cloves-2 pieces
  9. Bay leaves-2 pieces
  10. Almond-2 Tbs(chopped)

  12. Kalojam-2 pieces or made in small round pieces(optional)
Procedure :
  1. Wash the rice and put them in a deep pan with 4-5 cups of water. Then cook the rice in a medium heat until the rice is almost done (it may take about 20 minutes). Before removing from the burner, add food color and 1 Tbs Ghee to the rice and wait 1-2 minutes.
  2. Then strain out the rice through a strainer to drain the water and wash it under cold running water so that the rice grains remain separate.
  3. Heat ghee in a pan. Sauté cardamom, cinnamon stick, raisin, cloves, bay leaves, and 1 Tbs chopped almond in the Ghee for 1 minute. Then add rice into the pan and carefully stir it to coat the rice with ghee. After that add sugar, mix them well and cover the pan and turn the heat to low.(If you want more radish you may add little more food color.)
  4. Cook it in low heat for about 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Then uncover the lid and carefully stir the rice to evaporate the excess moisture from the rice.
  5. Now put your jorda in a serving dish and garnish with pistachios, rest of almond and Kalojam.
