Radish Rice

It feels like I haven’t posted anything here in ages. Ever since I started working again, things got hectic. This Monday parents returned back to India. So I don’t even find a single moment to relax, forget about spending time on blogging. Anyway, I do not want to give up so easily, I will post when I get few moments.

I tried this radish rice few months ago. I was in a mood to experiment with radishes. The rice came out really flavorful. I used tender radishes which do not have a strong smell. It goes well as a lunch box item.

1 and 1/2 cups rice
1 cup sliced onion
1 tea spn tamarind extract
1 and 1/2 cups radish
7-8 curry leaves
1 tea spn mustard
1 tea spn urad dal
A generous pinch of asafoetida
2 tea spns red chilli powder

Spice powder – Dry roast and powder
2 tea spns chana dal
2 tea spns urad dal
2 tea spns coriander seeds
1 tbl spn desiccated coconut(or dry coconut chopped finely)

Cook rice so that each grain is separate. Cool to room temperature.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds, urad dal. When mustard starts popping, add curry leaves, asafoetida and onions. Fry till onions turn brownish.
Now add radish pieces, salt, spice powder, chilli powder, tamarind, mix well. Pour in 1/2 cup water, cover and cook till radish pieces are soft (add more water if required).
Now add rice and mix well.
Serve on its own or with yogurt and pickle on the side.

Serves : 4
Preparation time : 30mins
