1
Rinse 250 grams of Gobindobhog rice under running water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.
2
In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add 2 small bay leaves, 4 green cardamoms, 4 cloves, and a 1-inch cinnamon stick. Sauté for a few seconds until the spices release their aroma.
3
Add the drained rice to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes on a medium flame.
4
Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix well. Sauté for another minute.
5
Add 500 ml of hot water and 100 grams of sugar to the pan. Stir well and bring the mixture to a boil.
6
Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked and all the water is absorbed.
7
In a separate pan, heat 1 tablespoon of ghee. Add 2 tablespoons of cashews and 2 tablespoons of raisins. Sauté until the cashews turn golden brown.
8
Add the sautéed dry fruits to the cooked rice and mix gently.
9
Serve the Basanti Pulao hot, garnished with a few more dry fruits if desired.
