I made this rice yesterday for Ganesha festival. I think it is God’s favourite item, but I am not sure. Simple yet satisfying. This is one of my comfort food.
Here goes the recipe:
Little more than 1 cup cooked rice
Juice of one lemon
1/2 tbsp peanuts
1 tbsp urad Dal
1/4 tsp jeera
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric
3-4 green chillies
2-3 curry leaves
1 clove of garlic crushed
3-4 sprigs of coriander leaves chopped
1 medium sized red chilli
4-5 tbsp of oil
Salt to taste
Add salt to the lemon juice if you are not using immediately other wise juice will turn bitter.
Add juice to the rice with salt.
Heat the oil.
Add jeera, mustard seeds, peanuts, urad dal and red chilli.
After they fry and become little brown add green chilli, garlic and curry leaves.
Fry for few seconds and add turmeric.
Switch off the stove.
Add tadka to the rice, mix everything and microwave for 30 seconds.
It enhaces the flavour.
