Curry leaf is something hard to find here and so when I left India mom made sure I carry atleast a little.She picked ,washed and pat-dried and packed them.She also prepared tasty curry leaf powder to use instead of curry leaf or just mix it with some hot rice drizzled with ghee..Just the thought makes me drooollll... Today though, I wanted to have curry leaf powder and rice with a difference so this is what I did...
Rice -1 cup cooked and grains seperate
Curry leaf powder -2 tablespoons or more
Green peas-1/2 cup
Roasted peanuts-1 tablespoon
Red chillies-2,broken into bits
Salt to taste
- Boil the peas and keep aside.
- Heat oil in a pan and add mustard and jeera.
- When it splutters,add the red chillies,roasted grounduts,cooked peas.Saute for a minute.
- Add the rice and sprinkle curry leaf powder over it
- Mix well and check for salt and add if needed.[Curry leaf powder already has salt]
- Serve hot with a raita/crispy.
