I m Excited to join Blogging Marathon #3!!!! This time Srivalli has organized it as two Groups. I m in Group-2, and running with 12 other blogger buddies on this Theme Based 7 Day Marathon!!!!! I have decided on the Theme Rice Dishes!!! Planning to post some Quick n Easy Rice Recipes. Please Check out my fellow Marathoner's Divya Vikram HariniJayKamalikallaPadma RekhaPavaniPriya MahadavanPriya SureshSuma GandlurVatsalaVeena Krishnakumar 

1 Cup Brown Rice, Cooked
1 - 2 tsp Ghee/Gingely Oil
1/2 tsp Mustard
1/4 gram dal
1 pod Garlic, thinly sliced
1 tsp Grounded Black Pepper
few Curry leaves
Salt to taste
Toasted Almonds, Coriander Leaves for Garnishing
Heat a Kadai, first dry roast the curry leaves. Add a tsp of Ghee/Oil, Splutter Mustard seeds, add Gram Dal, let it brown. Add Thinly sliced Garlic, fry them. When the garlic turns brown, Add Pepper Powder, Fry it for few seconds, Add Cooked Brown Rice, Crushed Curry leaves and Mix Well. If the Rice mix is Still dry, add another tsp of Ghee/Oil. Add Salt and Combine well. Garnish with Toasted Almonds and Coriander Leaves. Serve Hot with Pappad. We actually had it as such. Brings great relieve to Sore Throat!!!!!! 
I have made this using Brown Rice, you can make it White Rice also!!!!! For Health Reason's and to keep my guilt feeling off!!!! i will be using mostly Brown Rice for all my Rice Recipes!!!!!
