Tamarind Rice


2 1/2 cups Cooked Rice
3 to 4 tsp Tamarind Paste
2 tsp Turmeric Powder
4 Curry Leaves
4 Green Chillies - cut lengthwise
handful Peanuts
3 tbsp Oil


Mustard Seeds
Urid Dal
Channa Dal
4 Red Chillies


In a flat pan, gently mix the cooked rice with 1 tbsp oil and salt until everything is well mixed. Let this sit for 10 minutes.

In a small pan, add the remaining 2 tbsp of oil and the tadka ingredients, minus the red chillies. When the dal browns and the mustard seeds splutter add the red chillies, green chillies, curry leaves and turmeric powder. Once all of this is mixed well, add the peanuts and tamarind paste and let it all cook well.

Add this mixture to the cooked rice and mix everything evenly.

If the rice isn't sour enough, lime juice can be added to reach the desired taste.
