Now once the seeds are popped up, add ground nuts and fry them properly.
Then add curry leaves, green chili, onions and fry them nicely for 3 to 4 minutes so that chili and onions become soft.
In between after completion of one or two minutes, add red chili and ginger garlic paste, mix it, and make sure paste should be distributed evenly and nicely, and allow for remaining 2 or 3 minutes in low flame.
After completion of remaining period of time, now add the turmeric powder which is of one spoon, mix it nicely, the reason for why we are adding the turmeric powder is simply because it just kills the germs if there are any. Once again allow for two to three minutes in low flame.
After two to three minutes, add the rice slowly, mix it carefully so that every thing should integrate with each other, slowly the rice changes into the color of yellow. Now allow for 3 or 4 minutes in low flame.
