Peanut-rice-recipe-1
    I always love all mixed rice varieties. I don’t even need any side dish,just a papad or vadavam is enough for me and I eat unlimited Raised Eyebrow. For the same reason I rarely make,since vj also doesn’t prefer any mixed rice variety. When it comes to food, me and Vj are just contrast. I though rarely give him once in a while for his lunch. And I beg to adjust for a day Winking. But today I just made for myself and made it spicy as I wanted to eat something spicy to melt down my blocked nose.

Peanut rice recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients


Rice  1 cup 
Roasted peanuts  1/2 cup 
Turmeric  1/8 tsp 
Ghee/ sesame oil  1 – 2 tblsp 
Salt  As needed 
Sesame seeds  3/4 tsp 
Red chilles  3 
Grated coconut/ koppara  1/4 cup 


To Temper

Oil 1/2 tblsp
Mustard 1 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Channa dal 1 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig

Method

  1. Pressure cook rice and cool down to make the cooked grains separate by adding required salt and ghee/sesame oil. De skin the peanuts. Roast the sesame seeds,chilli and lastly add the coconut and fry until golden.
    1peanuts-horz
  2. Powder the chilli first roughly and then add other roasted items and peanuts. Grind into a coarse powder.
    2powder-horz
  3. Temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table and add turmeric to it.Add it to the rice and mix well.
    3temper-horz

Notes

  • I always soak rice for long hours to cook it with very less water and that gives u separate grains as well as soft to eat.
  • You can even add more sesame if you like to have that flavour dominating.
  • The ingredient ratio is different from the original recipe to adjust my taste.

Serve with papad or any vadams, or if you like with any kootu or spicy curry.

  63. Raks, Firstly, Thank you very much for sharing this amazing recipe. It is Fabulous and perfectly suits for a Weekend luncheon too. I prepared the dish and it was lip smacking. I had one query though: How did you manage to grind the Peanut mixture as a fine powder ? Mine turned out to be a thick paste. Kindly share your tips about the same.
