Nutty Rice was what I had on one of my bday in Taj, Bangalore. It tasted awesome and both myself and ajoy just loved it. When I was eating it I decided that I am surely going to try and make this. And guess what first attempt itself was upto the taste. Its very easy and tempting recipe one can impress guests with.

Nutty Rice
2 cups of cooked rice
4 spoon cooked corn
2 spoon groundnuts
2 spoon cashews
4 green chillies
1 spoon raisins
1/2 spoon jeera
2 spoon ghee
Salt to taste

  • Heat ghee in a pan
  • Add jeera and let it sputter
  • Add cashews, groundnuts and raisins
  • Once nuts turn light brown add chillies
  • Wait for nuts to turn dark brown and then add cooked rice, corn and salt
  • Mix it well and cook for 3-5 minutes

You can use 4-5 curry leaves as well if you like.
Using long grain rice like basamati gives nice aroma to the dish
