Temple rice is similar to tamarind rice but the way of preparing it is little different and it is very easy to cook and it requires no side dish and it itself satisfies as a whole meal.
I lik to send this recipe for Mixed Varieties Rice Event hosted by SimpleIndianFood.
This recipe also goes for WBB#23 Express Breakfasts Event by Singing Chef.
Red Rice – 1 cup
Water – 3 cups
Lemon – 1 medium size (extract the juice from it)
Salt – to taste
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Broken Black Gram – 1 tsp
Bengal Gram – 1 tsp
Dry Red Chilly – 5
Turmeric Powder – ½ tsp
Curry Leaves – few
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Service For: 2 people
Wash and clean the rice and drain the excess water.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add mustard seeds, broken black gram, bengal gram, red chilly, curry leaves, and turmeric powder one by one and saute it well. Add rice and water to it and stir it well. Add enough salt and bring it boil. Once it starts to boil, close the lid and let it cook for 7 whistles(depends upon the cooker) or until the rice is well cooked. Open the lid and serve it.
