In a pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Stir in the cumin seeds properly, Add the mint-coriander paste to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the raw smell disappears. Mix the coriander powder, garam masala powder, and salt in the pan.
Add the cooked rice to the pan and mix well with the mint-coriander mixture. Make sure the mixture has covered the rice completely. Add few curry leaves and cashews or peanuts (if using) and mix well.
