The Second Day of Blogging Marathon, Love the rush to do the post before the day ends.  I Recently got my hands on Ms. Mallika Badrinath's Rice Delights.  What an amazing collection of Rice Dishes. I m Picking up Dishes, which is easy to make it during the Morning Rush!!! These ingredients can be Roasted and Powdered earlier and mixed up easily for your Lunch Box!!!!
2 cups Rice, Cooked
1 and 1/4 Cup Roasted Peanuts
1 tsp Sesame seeds
8 to10 Red Chillies
1/4 Cup Grated Dry Coconut
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Oil

For Seasoning
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
3/4 tsp Gram Dal
Curry leaves a few
Remove the outer skin of the roasted peanuts and pound it coarsely.  Heat a tsp of oil and fry red chillies and dry coconut till light brown.  Powder Separately.  Dry Roast sesame seeds till light brown and powder separately. Heat oil and fry the seasoning till golden brown.  Add turmeric powder and pour rice with salt and other powdered ingredients.  Mix well and Serve.
