Coriander Peas Rice

One of my Tamil Blog friend kovaitothili's recipe I changed little bit to my taste.


Rice - 200 grams
Coriander (cilantro)- 1 punch
whole red chilies - 4 nos
Cumin seeds - 1 tspn
Tamarind - half gooseberry size
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tspn
Peas - 25 grams

For tempering

Mustard seed - 1/2 tspn
channa dal - 1 tpsn
urad dal - 1 tspn
hing - 1 pinch
curry leaves - few 
garlic - 2 pods


Wash rice and soak for 10 min.

Wash the coriander leaves and drain well.

Grind the coriander leaves, tamarind, and whole red chili in a blender.
In pressure cooker temper the above said ingredients
Add peas, and ground paste stir well for 2 min
Add soaked rice and add enough water (1:1 1/2.) 300ml ,close the lid and leave for two  to three whistles.
When pressure is released, open the lid carefully mix well with a fork and serve it hot.
Amazing aromatic  flavorful coriander rice is ready.
