Add some poppadums on the side for a simple yet tasty meal.

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • (or canola or sunflower cooking oil)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 3 to 4 curry leaves
  • 2 green chilies (slit lengthwise)
  • 1-inch piece ginger (grated)
  • 1/2 cup cashews (roasted and unsalted)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 cups cooked basmati rice (or leftover rice)

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Gently roast and then coarsely grind the coriander seeds into powder. Set aside.

  5. Add the turmeric powder and turn off the burner.
  6. Add the lemon juice and mix well.
