  Salt to taste
1   Asafoetida

Recipe Instructions

Cook rice in the normal way. Cool.

Heat oil in a pot. Add asafoetida, black mustard seeds, curry leaves , chana daal, urad daal and red chilies. Once the black mustard seeds start to sputter and the daals are slightly light brown add the peanuts, lemon juice, salt and turmeric powder. Finally, add boiled rice and mix it well. Serve at room temperature.

Tip : Lemons tend to be sweeter and don't' give the recipe the sourness it needs.

A very popular dish in the South of India. This one can be made without the peanuts. It is usually served at room temperature. It is a favorite among South Indian get-togethers. Works well with lunches, dinners, or even a heavy brunch.
