Although I planned to use white basmati rice, as the time approached to make it, I decided to swap in Quinoa instead. Here is the list of ingredients I used:

Ingredients:
1cup Quinoa
1cup Cauliflower florets
1 cup beans cut into 1in pieces
1 potato cut into 1in pieces
1/2 beetroot sliced
1/2 onion sliced
1tomato chopped
2-3 bay leaves
1/2tsp cloves
1/2tsp cumin seeds
1tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1tsp coriander powder
1 star anise
1small cinnamon stick
1tsp cardamon pods
1tsp ghee
1-2 tbsp oil
Turmeric
Pinch of saffron
2-3 tbsp milk to soak saffron in
