Recipe Rating   :Unrated
Prep Time         :0:1
Cals/Serving    :2326


1 cup rice
1/2 cup split red gram (arhar dal in Hindi,
kandipappu in Telugu)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
3 cups water
Salt -- to taste
2 tablespoons tamarind paste

1 medium tomato -- cut in 4 pieces
2 green chiles -- sliced
1/4 cup peas
1/4 cup potato pieces
1 baby eggplant -- cut bite size
1/4 cup French beans

1/4 cup butter
6 black peppercorns
10 cashew nuts
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
10 curry leaves
1 fist full coriander
2 teaspoons sambhar powder
1 pinch asafoetida


Cook rice and split red gram in 3 1/2 cups of water until the mixture is well cooked. Add salt and turmeric and remove from heat. (It is alright if there is still some water left in the pot.)

Cook all the ingredients in Set 2 in 3/4 cup of water.

Add the above cooked vegetables and tamarind paste to the pot containing rice and split red gram and cook on medium heat for seven minutes.

Heat butter in a wide skillet and when butter has melted add peppercorns, cashew nuts and cumin seeds. Fry on lower-than-medium heat for a few minutes until the cashew nuts turn pale brown.

Now add asafoetida, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Fry for a minute.

Next add sambhar powder, stir once and immediately add the contents of the pot containing rice and vegetables. Stir well and cook for three to four minutes on medium and remove from heat.

Serve hot with a little butter on top.
