Recipes - Savoury Beaten Rice (Pov Usli)


2 cups beaten rice flakes - thick variety

2 tbsp. oil

1 tsp. mustard seeds

1 sprig curry leaves

1 medium onion chopped

2 green chillies chopped

¼ tsp turmeric powder

2 tbsp. roasted peanuts

2-3 tbsp. grated coconut

Wash the beaten rice in water thoroughly. Drain and keep aside.  Heat the oil in a pan. Toss in the mustard seeds. Fry till the mustard seeds splutter fully. Drop in the curry leaves. Fry briefly. Add the onions, green chilli(es) and turmeric powder. Stir fry on medium / low level for about 2 minutes.   Mix in the coconut, roasted peanuts, beaten rice and mix well.  Mix in the sugar and salt to taste. Mix in a few tablespoons of water into the mixture. Cover and cook on low level for about 2 minutes or till the beaten rice absorbs the water, softening it and the flavors are well blended. Do not overcook the beaten rice, as it tends to harden. Keep covered for a few minutes before serving.  Serve hot garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
