Dhaniya Podi Saadam/Coriander Seeds Rice - Day 7 Blogging Marathon

The Last Day of Blogging Marathon. Planned to make a Spicy Rice Mix for Lunch. Though my hubby asked for something like a One Pot Meal, i want to stick to my idea of Quick Rice Recipes. This Recipe is again from Mallika Badhrinath's Rice Delights Cook-Book.
1 Cup Rice, Cooked
2 tbsp Coriander Seeds/Dhaniya 
4-5 nos Red Chillies
2 tsp Black gram dal/Urad Dal
2-3 cloves of garlic
Tamarind, size of a marble/Goli Gundu
Salt to taste
Curry leaves a few

1 -2 tsp Sesame Oil/Ghee
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
hing a little
curry leaves a few
2 tsp Chopped almonds

Heat a little oil and fry red chillies. Coriander seeds and urad dal/Black gram dal till brown in colour.  Add curry leaves at the end and fry for one or two minutes, in low flame.When it cools down powder everything together with garlic, tamarind and salt.  
Heat oil in a Pan, Splutter mustard seeds, little hing. Fry curry leaves and chopped almonds. Now add Rice and Fry for a second or two.  Put off the flame, add the grounded powder and Mix well. Adjust the salt. Serve with Potato Curry or any crisp of your choice. The aroma of freshly pound Coriander seeds with tamarind tasted great. Makes a Spicy, Flavourful Lunch Box Recipe!!
