Cubes of potato fried in coconut butter and set aside.


Sweet peas sauteed in sesame seed oil and set aside.


Hazelnuts sauteed until crunchy and set aside.


Grill grated coconut until slightly brown to bring out the rich aroma of coconut and set aside.


Cook both black and basmati rice separately and it takes both different time to cook.


Spread rice out on a tray to cool down to prevent the rice from sticking during sauteeing.


Saute all seeds in a pot with cooking butter or oil for few seconds, then add all spices, and stir for few more seconds.


Add the sweet peas, potatoes, and hazelnut and salt, giving a slight mix around.


Pour the mixture on to the tray and mix it up well. Garnish with grated coconut, and you have a fabulous dry stir fry risotto.
