Milagu Sadham | Pepper Flavored Rice for CCC

I have already mentioned in several posts that I love flavored rice varieties. So when it was time to make a dish for the Srivalli's Cooking with Cookbook Challenge, I chose this from one of the supplements- Rice varieties that came with the Tamil Magazine - Snegidhi.I have another version of pepper flavored rice but this is a bit different

I made a few changes to the dish to suit my taste. I paired with with a khadi and it was a nice combo.

I used:

Rice- 1/2 cup
Urad dhal-1 tablespoon
Gram dhal-1 tablespoon
Peppercorns - 11/2 tablespoons
Groundnuts, roasted- a fistful
Curry leaves- a few
Mustard- 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
Asafoetida- a large pinch
Ghee- 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste

1.Cook rice so that the grains are separate. Heat a pan and roast pepper corns, urad dhal and channa dal till the dal turns light brown.Cool and powder.

2.Heat ghee in a pan and add mustard, cumin, curry leaves, asafoetida and groundnuts. When the mustard crackles, add the powder[see note below], salt and mix well. Cook on low flame for a few minutes for the flavors to blend. Remove from heat and serve.

Note :

This post is for the Cookbook Challenge of the month....

Bon Appetit...
