Talimpu Rice For Sumeer Express Cooking Event

This is my entry to Mallugirl's Summer Express Cooking Event. This event is all about good food and speed. A meal to be made in anywhere from 10-30 minutes, start to finish. You can use semi- homemade products, such as ready made rotis and tortillas, frozen veggies, or precooked chicken or left over rice. Thanks Mallugirl. For that I prepared this simple, delicious and quick rice dish with left over rice. Its my favourite rice item. Simple ingredients and simple process to follow but yummy taste.

Talimpu Rice:
Prep time : 5 minutes
Cooking time : 15 minutes (See the method)
Serves : 2
Cuisine : Andhra

2 cups cooked and leftover rice
Red chilli powder : 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
1 medium size chopped onion
1 green chilli (chopped)
1 dry red chilli (cut into 2 pieces)
few chopped curry leaves
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp mustards
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp urid dal(minappappu)
1 tbsp chana dal (shanagapappu)
3 tbsp groundnuts
a pinch of turmeric powder

Method : First 5 minutes for Preparation:

1. Chopp onion, 1 green chilli, red dry chilli and few curry leaves and keep aside.

2. Divide each rice grain. Mix red chilli powder and salt to rice and keep aside.

3. Keep groundnuts, chanadal and urid dal into a plate.

Cooking time : Next 15 minutes

4. Heat oil in wide vessel, once heat, add jeera and mustards; let them pop, add urid dal, chana dal and ground nuts, roast them for 2 minutes (don't burn them) on low heat.

5. Next add chopped onions, green chillies, red chilli and curry leaves. Fry them till onions become lightly golden colour. Lastly add the turmeric powder, mix well.

6. Then add mixed rice to above tempering, mix well, cover with a lid, stirring between, let the rice becomes desired hot, then turn off the heat.

7. Yummy talimpu rice is ready. Its looks in yellow colour with superb taste.

Note: 1. While doing this talimpu rice, you should take care about the roasting groundnuts. They should roast correctly otherwise they may burn. It will change complete taste of talimpu rice.
