TEHRI (Sweet Saffron Rice)


This is a Traditional Sindhi dish prepared on auspicious occasions and festive days. It pairs well with sai bhaji.

Ingredients:
Basmati rice .... 1 cup
Sugar ............... 3/4 cup
Cardamoms .... 3-4
Salt ............... a pinch
Saffron ........ 1/8 tsp ( a generous pinch )
Pistachios .... few (unsalted)
Almonds ...... 2-3
Raisins ....... few
Ghee / oil



Method:
1. Wash and soak the rice for 1 hour.

2. In a pan heat ghee / oil  and add the cardamoms.


3. Add the rice and saute. Now pour one and half cups water.



4. When it starts boiling add a pinch of salt, saffron and let it cook until three-fourths done.



5. Now add the sugar. Stir it and let it cook on low flame.

6. Place the pot on a griddle and cover the lid well. Stir it carefully a couple of times until the water from the sugar is absorbed and the tehri is done.
If you like soft tehri then sprinkle a little more water and place it for dum.

7. Heat a little ghee and pour over the tehri. Garnish with sliced pistachios and almonds.
