Mint Rice/Pudhina Sadham

I have already posted Mint Pulao recipe..this is a slight variation from that.
Cooked (Basmati) Rice-11/2 cups
Cumin seeds-1teaspoon
Oil + Ghee - 2 tablespoons
To grind
Mint- a small bunch
Cilantro- a fist full
Green chilly-3 (adjust to your taste)
Grated coconut-1tablespoon
Cinnamon Stick - 2 inch piece
Elaichi -1

Wash and soak the rice for half an  hour, and cook it to one whistle with perfect amount of water. The rice grains should be separate.
Let the rice cool completely.  
Grind the items, given under "to grind" table into a fine paste by adding little water.

Cut the onions into thin lengthwise pieces. Heat oil+ghee in a wide wok, add the cumin seeds and let it splutter. Then add in the cashews, fry till they turn golden in colour. 
Now add the onion, and sauté till it becomes slight brown in colour.
Add the mint paste with enough salt and continue cooking.
 Cook till the masala becomes dry and oil is oozing out.
 Now add in the rice, mix everything carefully, without breaking the rice grains.
Switch off the flame after a couple of minutes. Quick and delicious  mint rice is ready to serve.
 Enjoy it with your choice of chips/papad or plain curd.
