Pepper Rice

Last week my parents had been to native to attend a Grihapravesham. Hence on arriving at home on Saturday, the onus to cook for the day had been on me. The breakfast was taken care in a nearby restaurant. Mom had saved few curries in fridge, so the noon’s meal was taken care of as well. For dinner, we were running short of sambar, I didn’t want to prepare anything fresh as we were only two people and what ever prepared would somehow remain the next day. There was huge amount of rice from the noon’s meal. I decided to try a simple recipe suggested by Vidhya, my friend. It turned out to be tasty. Here it is:

  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 2 tsp Ghee or butter
  • Finely chopped carrot, capsicum and beans (if desired)
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooked rice

The amount of pepper, cumin seeds and ghee will vary depending on the rice. Heat the cumin seeds and black pepper in a pan. Powder them and keep aside. In the pan heat sufficient ghee or butter add the chopped carrot, capsicum and beans. Fry them till the rawness subsidizes. Add the cumin and pepper powder and stir the vegetables for a while. Add salt to taste. Lastly, add the cooked rice. Stir the rice till it blends properly with the contents in the pan. Add ghee, pepper or salt if need be.

Serve hot.

Try it and let me know. If you like the recipe thank Vidhya not me.

That’s all for this entry another one coming in few more mins till then God bless.
