I still remember when I was a kid, my mom used to prepare this rice for my lunch box. Enough of edification now. Let us see how to make this rice:


(1 cup refers to 100 grams)

1. Rice - (sona masori) - 1 cup

3. Green chillis - 3 nos (cut in length wise)
4. Papad - 4 nos

For Seasoning:

1. Oil - 3 tsps
2. Ghee - 3 tsps

4. Urad dal - 2 tsp
5. Channa dal(split) - 3 tsp
6. Curry leaves - some
7. Asafodita Powder - pinch
8. Salt to taste

Method of preparation:

1. Cook the rice with 2 1/2 cups of water. Transfer the cooked rice into big bowl or besan and sprinkle 1 or 2 tsps of oil on the top of rice.

2. Heat 3 tsps of ghee in a kadai and fry the coconut in the ghee for 2 to 3 mins. Once its ready just keep it aside.

3. Now heat 3 tsps of oil in a kadai and add the mustard seeds. Allow mustard seeds to crackle and the add the split channa dal and urad dal. Once dal gets into golden color, add green chillies, curry leaves, asafodita powder.
