Chutney Dal/Roasted Gram Spiced Rice - Day 5 Blogging Marathon

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Wishing all you Lovely Ladies, a Very Happy Women's Day. Roasted Gram/Chutney Dal Rice, it just came as i was cooking. I kept adding ingredients that came on to my mind, the result was a Tasty, Spicy Mixed Rice. Served this to my hubby for Dinner, he was super satisfied to have a bowl of this after a Tiring Day.

1 Cup Rice, Cooked ( i have used Basmati Rice)
2 tbsp Roasted Gram/Chutney Dal
1 tbsp Peanuts, Skinned
4-5 nos Red Chillies
2 cloves of Garlic, thinly sliced
2 tbsp Dessicated Coconut
4-5 Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil
Salt to taste

1 tsp Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
hing a pinch
4-5 Curry leaves 
2 tbsp Chopped Almonds
Heat a tsp of oil in a Pan, add Roasted Gram and Red Chillies. Warm it up a little. Add Peanuts and Garlic and Keep Roasting. Once the Peanuts change color a bit, add Dessicated Coconut and Curry leaves. Roast it  for few more seconds. Put off the flame. Let it cool. Grind this to a fine powder.
Heat oil in the same pan, Splutter mustard seeds, add hing and curry leaves.
Add Almonds and fry them. Once the almonds are roasted, add Rice and Sauté for a minute, add the Grounded Dal Powder, Salt and Mix well with Rice. If the Rice Mix is Dry, add some more Oil/Ghee. Serve with Chips. Makes a Good Lunch Box Recipe. The Dal Mix can be Powdered prior and stored  in an Air-tight container.
