Moongfali Chawal - मूंगफली चावल (Peanut Rice) for Blog Hop

Hello Friends,


Another week of Blog Hop, love it, get to try different blogs and different recipes. Please check out what all this is about.


This week, I am paired with Priya Vassu of Enveetu Kitchen. A wonderful blogger and a great space she has. As, I always say, when I cook from someone's blog, I like to try their specialties, so, I picked a south Indian variety of rice preparation. I loved such mixed and quick rice preparations.

We enjoyed it and hope you do too !!!

Moongfali Chawal - मूंगफली चावल (Peanut Rice)
Ingredients
Rice - 2 cups, cooked
Peanuts - 1.5 cup, skinned and roasted (I used pre-roasted and lightly salted peanuts)

Grated Coconut - 1/4 Cup

Sesame seeds - 2 tbsp (you can increase the quantity or omit based on your preference)
Dry Red Chilies - 8-10

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp, just for color
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
For Seasoning
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Gram Dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves a few - I skipped this as I didn't have any.

Preparation
  • Cook rice such  that the rice grains are nice and fluffy.
  • Powder roasted peanuts coarsely.
  • Take 1 tsp oil in a non stick pan.
  • Roast coconut and red chilies and powder them.
  • Dry roast sesame seeds. Now, original recipe asked to powder it. But, I preferred not to, so, it is your preference.
  • Heat rest of the oil in a pan. 
  • Add seasoning and let it splutter.
  • Now, add rice, turmeric powder and all dry powders along with salt.
  • Mix well and take it off the heat.
Serving
Serve it with some pickle or rasam/dahi as you prefer.




Please do check what other blog hoppers are cooking.



That's all for now. Take care till next post.
