Print this Recipe    Here are a couple of favorite rice recipes that i use for packed

lunches. They work really well with leftover cooked rice, or rice sticks.
When rice sticks are used, break the sticks up into small pieces before
boiling. Drain as much of the water as possible.

I'm aware that some of the spices may be available in Indian food
stores only, but i think it is worth the trip :-). You can also experiment
with adding a variety of nuts, raisins....

Coconut Rice
----------
Ingredients
dessicated coconut (shredded ,unsweetened)
dry red chillies (1 or two)
sesame seeds
peanuts
salt to taste
1-2 tbsps oil
optional : mustard seeds, cumin seeds, lentils, a pinch of asafoetida,
curry leaves
(for the more adventurous :-) )

Fry all ingredients in the oil. Add rice/rice sticks and salt. Stir
well.

Lime Rice
-------
Ingredients

juice of 1-2 limes (lemons will do too; it is just a different flavor)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp turmeric
peanuts
1-2 green chillies, chopped finely
fresh ginger, chopped finely
salt to taste
a pinch of sugar
1-2 tbsps oil

optional : mustard seeds, cumin seeds, lentils, a pinch of asafoetida,
curry leaves

Fry green chillies, ginger (optional ingredients), peanuts. Take your pan off
the fire, add turmeric into the mixture. Add rice/rice sticks and mix really well.
Add lime/lemon juice. Garnish with coelantro if desired.

I sometimes add chopped dill or peas to this recipe. This dish looks really
great, because of its yellow (turmeric) and green (coriander, dill, peas)
colours. Tastes great too!
