Coriander Rice - A southern delicacy

A very delicious and aromatic rice made in no time.


1 cup rice
2-3 tsp oil
Salt to taste

For grinding:

1 cup coriander leaves
1" piece ginger
1 onion
2-3 green chillies

For Tempering:

1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp Chana dal (Bengal gram dal)
1 tsp urad dal
1 tsp cashew nuts
1 tsp raisins
curry leaves- a hand full
Asafoetida- a dash


Pressure cook the rice with 2 1/2 cups of water and let it cool. Grind the coriander leaves along with other ingredients. In a pan heat oil and temper with the given ingredients. To that add the coriander paste and salt. Let it cook for few minutes until the raw smell of the onion and coriander is gone. Add the cooked rice and fold gently until all the ingredients mix well and the rice takes up the flavours. Serve hot with pappad.
