South Indian Rice Recipes


South India is well known for its delicious rice dishes. Lime rice and tamarind rice are two of my personal favorites. Lime rice is tangy, refreshing and light while tamarind rice is spicy and bolder in flavor. My Tamarind Rice recipe is a quick & easy version, compared to the more traditional & authentic way of making tamarind rice. Either way, its the perfect way to use leftover rice.


LIME RICE (or Lemon Rice)

Serves 4

Ingredients:

2 cups pre-cooked Basmati rice, separate the grains until fluffy & loose
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
3-4 dried red chilies, to taste
6-8 fresh curry leaves
pinch of asafetida (hing)
1 tbsp urad dal (split black lentils or black gram dal)
2 tbsp chana dal (split Bengal gram - soaked in water for at least 30 minutes, drain well)
salt, to taste
1 tsp turmeric (haldi)
juice of 2 limes (or you can use lemons and make Lemon Rice)
cup roasted unsalted cashew nuts
cup roasted unsalted peanuts
1 tbsp oil (vegetable or canola)
freshly chopped cilantro leaves for garnish

METHOD:

In a large wok on medium high heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, carefully add the black mustard seeds & allow them to splatter. When the splattering stops, add the cumin seeds along with the dried red chilies, curry leaves, asafetida, urad dal and chana dal. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until slightly browned. Then add the salt and turmeric. Next, add the cooked rice and mix well to combine all of the ingredients. Lastly, add the lime juice, stir, reduce the heat to low, cover and let cook for 5 minutes. Finish the dish by adding the cashews and peanuts. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve immediately.
