One fineday i was in a crazy mood to try different rice recipes. So i started to work on it and i made quite a few recipes. I made sesame rice, gooseberry rice, curryleaf rice..All of them turned out so good and we enjoyed it to the core. This has become one of my favorite among them, it was spicy and nutty. If you have leftover rice, then this is a awesome recipe to give it a try.
You can even make the peanut powder in advance and store in fridge for a couple of weeks. It won’t go bad. By this way your work is half reduced. You can just mix this with rice and do a little tempering and your work is done.
Hope you will love this and let me know how it turned out..
