Something to heat up the tastebuds on a cold rainy day.Increase or decrease the pepper to your taste.This lovely,pungent and sharp tasting spice can best be relished when used fresh ground pepper instead of the preground powder.
Rice- 1 cup ,cooked,each grain should be seperate
Mustard seeds-1 teaspoon
Black peppercorns-1.5 tablespoons
Black sesame seeds-1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
- In a pan ,dry roast peppercorns,sesame seeds and curry leaves till you get a wonderful aroma.Remove from heat ,let it cool a bit and powder coarsely.
- Heat the ghee and add the mustard seeds and jeera,let them splutter and add the curry leaves and wait till it turns crisp.
- Add the cooked rice,salt and the ground powder and mix well to combine.
Remove from heat and serve with a raita/gravy and crispies .This rice is a breeze to prepare,right!
.I served it with a tangy potato gravy for which the recipe will be posted shortly...
