Fodni Bhaat /Tempered rice with peanuts and pomegrante.

 This a very simple rice dish i often have it when there is leftover rice..I love adding peanuts and pomogrante for it adds crunchiness to this simple yet awesome dish..


  • 2 cups cooked rice.
  • 1 to 2 green chillies
  • a spring of curry leaves
  • a handful of peanuts
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice.
  • Coriander leaves to garnish.
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds to garnish


In a pan heat oil add curry leaves, mustard seeds once they begin to splutter add cumin then add peanuts and fry for a while Then add chopped green chilly saute for a minute then add rice ,turmeric and lemon juice add salt as per needed since the rice already has salt...Give it a good toss and garnish with pomogranate and coriander leaves .
Serve hot...
Adding Pomegranate is purely optional....
