Cook the rice in an electric rice cooker. Add the deep fried onions, vegetables, broiled cumin and coriander seeds, the mace flowers, garam masala, yellow pulao colour, salt and ghee.
Either you boil the jackfruit or deep fry it.
Heat the mustard seeds in 1 tablespoon of ghee. When they crackle, add the curry leaf sprigs, stir and add the deep fried onions. Lower the flame and add the ground masala along with salt and mix vigorously till a lovely aroma comes forth. Add the tamarind-jaggery pulp and stir for 5 minutes and then add the boiled or fried jackfruit. Lower the flame and simmer for 10 minutes.
Grease a vessel on the base and sides. Place half the rice inside and top it with the jackfruit gravy. Cover gravy with the remaining rice. Top with the mint and cashewnuts. Cover the vessel with a fitting lid and seal with dough. Place it on a tava over medium heat for 15 minutes.
