Amla Rice

This amla rice is a very very simple rice variety and it will just take less than 10 minutes to make this, if we have cooked rice.  I tried this rice last week. It came out pretty good.

  1. Amla/Nellikka/Gooseberry - 2 (medium sized)
  2. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  3. Ginger - a small piece
  4. onion - 1 (thinly sliced)
  5. Cooked rice - 1 1/2 cups
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Sesame oil - 2 tsp
  8. mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  9. Urad dhall - 1 tsp
  10. turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  11. Coriander leaves - for garnishing
  12. Asafoetida - a pinch
Microwave amla for three minutes or till it becomes soft.  Let it cool for few minutes. Remove the seed from it. Grind it along with green chillies and ginger into a fine paste adding required amount of water.  In the mean time, heat sesame oil, splutter mustard seeds, fry urad dhall,  asafoetida and thinly sliced onion to golden brown. Now add the grounded amla paste, turmeric powder and saute till the raw smells goes.  Now add the cooked rice, required amount of salt and mix it well.  Garnish it with coriander leaves.  This rice goes well with some chips or papad.
