This is rice Pulav with Potato chips (French Fries) and fried onions. Making French Fries is little time consuming; otherwise it’s an easy recipe. It tastes awesome.

Medium size Potatoes 5

Medium size Onions 2

Coriander leaves Chopped 1 teaspoon

Cashew nuts pieces 2 teaspoon

Raisins (Khishmish) 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves 1 teaspoon

Black pepper 10 peppercorns

Cinnamon ½ inch

Cloves 5-6

Green Chilly Paste 1 teaspoon

Sugar ¾ teaspoon

Lemon Juice 1 teaspoon

Desi Ghee / Clarified Butter 1 teaspoon

Cumin Seeds (Jeera) ½ teaspoon

Asafoetida (Hing) a pinch

Salt to taste

Oil to deep fry french fries


1. Wash rice and keep aside for 30 minutes.
