Method Of Preparation -

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat some oil/butter.

Add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaves and fry them.

Add finely chopped onions and saute until they golden brown in color.

Add ginger-garlic paste and also tomato or tomato paste and saute.

Mix in turmeric and green chillies (I prefer to put green chilli paste)

Add all the chopped veggies and saute them for a couple minutes and add washed basmati rice.

Saute the rice until it changes color and transfer the contents into a rice cooker.

Add salt and 4 cups of water and switch on the rice cooker.
