  Vegetable stock 1 Pint (hot)
  Arrowroot 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Thick yogurt 1⁄2 Pint (set, natural)

  Turmeric 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Directions

MAKING
1) In a medium sized bowl, place the onion and margarine.
2) On high power, cook covered for 3 minutes, or until soft.
3) In another bowl, place half of this sauteed onion and keep aside.
4) Into one of the onion bowls, add the carrot, rice, peas, green beans, sweet corn, salt and stock.
5) On high power, cook covered for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring in between, until the rice is tender and the mix is thick. By now, most of the liquid would be absorbed.
6) Tightly cover the bowl and let stand for 10 minutes.
7) Now, in a small bowl, blend the arrowroot with 1 tablespoon of yogurt.
8) To the remaining onion bowl, add this mix.
9) To this, add the garlic, turmeric, chili powder, ginger, allspice, and salt.
10) On high power, cook for 2 minutes. Mix well.
11) Now, reduce the oven setting to Defrost/Low and cook again for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in between so that the mix doesn't boil.

SERVING
12) Pour the yogurt sauce over the hot rice and serve immediately.
