1 clove of garlic crushed

1 large green chilli

3 sprigs of coriander leaves

2 curry leaves

1/4 tsp combination of jeera and mustard seeds

Pinch of turmeric

1 tbsp of peanuts

  1. Thanks for your wishes at my blog. This dish looks so tempting to me. I so very love peanuts with rice. Can’t use it much as hubby is not very fond of them, even though iI could use it separately for me, but somehow it doesn’t come to that so often. 🙂


  2. Hi, even i don’t like peanuts so much. I add it because my husband likes them. You can totally eliminate peanuts if you don’t want to use them. You could also use urad dal or chana dal.
