Tempered Rice


This is usually called as thalicha sadam. When ever I miss my dinner the previous night, my Mom had this prepared and well ready for the next day lunch. I cannot escape this dish.  Its prepared from the left over food. Tastes too good with one spicy semi gravy or a dry side dish  too.

left over cooked rice - 1 cup
onion - 1 (thinly sliced)
juice of lemon - 2 tsp
salt to taste
green chillies - 3 (slit)

mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
urad dal - 1 tsp
channa dal - 1 tsp
curry leaves - 5-6
oil - 2 tsp

- add oil in a pan
- when oil is hot add urad dal and chana dal and wait for it to change its colour.
- add the mustard seeds and curry leaves
- add onions and fry till they are transparent
- now add the green chillies and fry
- after a min add rice, salt and lemon juice
- mix well
- allow this to sit in low flame for 2 mins covered
