Potato Rice

TODAY  Day 3 # Blogger Marathon by Srivalli. Last week my neighbor in Saudi gave kapsa rice which is Arabian preparation of rice with chicken. I asked her for the recipe , I just want to learn it. Kabsa is a most famous traditional rice recipe prepared with meat and chicken. But i made it in our own indian style of preparation where i substituted potato instead of chicken and few changes by adding red chilli powder, but the spice powder is the same as she told me. But the taste din't change. they prepare it in a authentic vessel. but here i used rice cooker. have a look. I want to try out kabsa rice with chicken also and will post it soon.

2 cup basmati rice
2 big potatoes
1 cup onion chopped
½ cup tomatoes
3no green chilies
Hand full of coriander leaves
3no garlic (chopped finely)
1 tsp red chilli powder
1tsp lemon juice
2tbsp of oil
2tsp butter
Salt to taste
SPICES (ground separately)
Little saffron
4no cardamom
½ inch cinnamon
½ tsp garam masala
4 pepper seeds (white)
Fried onion
Add water to the rice and leave it for 15 to 20 min.
Take a pan, add oil / butter and sauté onion and garlic, fry well till the onion turns to brown in colour add a tsp ful of red chilli powder then tomatoes, green chilli and coriander leaves. 
 Fry well add the spice powder and salt fry till all mix well.
