Heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a cooker. Add all the spices and saute for a min. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for a min.
Add rice and fry for 2-3 mins stirring continuously.

Once the steam goes remove the lid and keep the cooker open

To the pan add 1/3 rd of the rice prepared and 1/3 rd of vegetables. Mix well. Repeat the same for remaining rice in two batches. (When u do it in batches, mixing becomes easy)
