Recipe for Black pepper fried rice - How to make south indian black pepper rice (milagu saadam)

This is one of my favorite fried rice. It could be made in 15 to 20 minutes.

Ingredients:

Basmati rice - 1 cup
Black or white pepper - 2 tsp
Red chillies - 2

Seasoning:

Ghee - 2 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Jeera - 1/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Cashew nuts - 3 tsp(pitted)
Curry and coriander leaves - some

Method of preparation:

1. Soak the basmati rice for about 30 mins. Add some salt and cook the rice with one and half water. Once the rice is cooked, cool the rice.

2. Transfer the cooked white rice into big bowl(basin) and sprinkle 1 or 2 spoons of oil so the rice won't be sticky.

3. Heat the pan, (don't add any oil), add black pepper now fry it raw for 2 mins. Don't fry too much because color will change and flavor also. Transfer this into a mixi bowl and crush it(don't make as a powder though)

4. Heat the small pan with 2 tsp of ghee. Fry the cashews in the pan and keep it aside.

5.Heat pan with 2 tsp of oil; add mustard seeds. Allow mustard seeds to crackle. Now add jeera and urad dal. Once it became golden color, add red chillies, and asafodita powder curry leaves. Stir it well.

6. Now add the rice, crushed pepper powder, salt , cashew nuts and coriander leaves into the pan and stir it gently. 

Now the black pepper fried rice is ready to be served.
