Garlic Rice

Posted on

Garlic/Belluli/Losun is healthy and as we know just a little bit of it makes quite a difference to a dish. Its strong odor means that its either loved or hated. But that it has medicinal properties is not a point of dispute. Garlic rice is tasty but not a very common dish out there. Nevertheless, its worth a try.

What you need to have:

1. Basumati rice – 1 cup

2. Chopped Spring Onions & greens  – 1 cup

3. Green chillies – 3-4

4. Chopped Garlic cloves – 2 Teaspoons

5. Resins – A handful

6. Cashews – A handful

7. Garam Masala powder – 3/4 teaspoon

8. Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon

9. Cooking oil – 2 tablespoons

4. When done add Garam masala to it. Add cooked rice from step 2 to it and mix well. Check for salt and squeeze lemon juice. You may serve hot with a salad but I have noticed that people prefer to enjoy it plain to relish the strong garlic flavor ! This dish serves as lunch box as well.
