Cook rice along with a pinch of turmeric, salt and few drops of oil. Once done, set aside to cool. Make sure rice is not mushy.
Heat ghee and oil in a large saute pan. Add peanuts, chana dal, urad dal, mustard, cumin seeds, dry red chilies and cashews. Cook until the lentils are golden and the seeds start spluttering.
Add curry leaves, ginger and green chilies. Cook for 1~2 minutes.
Next add the mixed vegetables and turmeric. Cover and cook until the veggies are tender, about 10~12 minutes.
Stir in grated coconut, salt and cook for 2 minutes.
Add the cooked rice and mix well to combine and cook for 2~3 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot.
