Grind the cloves and cinnamon coarsely. In a large heavy pan heat the ghee or dalda and fry the ground cinnamon, cloves & cardamom pods. Add the cumin seeds & onions and fry until golden. Put the chili powder in it. Then add all the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes. Lower the heat and add the rice and fry until all the ghee or dalda has been absorbed. Then add salt and 2 cups of water. Using a tight fitting lid cover the pan. Bring this to a boil by raising the heat. Then reduce the heat and cook for about 30 minutes or until rice & vegetables are done. Garnish with chopped coriander. Serve hot with any kind of salad, mint, coriander chutney and curry.
You can also do this in the oven at 325°F for about 25 minutes.
