Rice is the staple food of Indians. We consume it as plain rice with some accompaniment or any variety of rice dish. The variety of rice dishes are more popular with children.They love  variety of pulav and biryanis.  Kadai pulav is a tasty rice dish that you can prepare in half an hour. I use only carrot and peas for this recipe. Thus, there is no much chopping also involved.

Kadai pulav is ideal for fussy children. It makes a good brunch or lunch box menu. Children love colourful dishes.

Groundnut chutney

Groundnut chutney is a very tasty accompaniment that can be served with idli or dosa. It was during last winter that I first made it, and since then , it has become a routine.

Usually, roasted groundnuts are grinded with  green chillies  and salt along with a little tamarind pulp. But, I have made a slight variation here. The consistency was dense, adding a little coconut was appropriate and a dash of ginger gave more taste to it..

Ingredients:

  • Roasted groundnuts 1/2 cup
  • coconut 1tsp
  • green chilly 2
  • curry leaves a few
  • ginger 1/2 inch
  • tamarind pulp 1tsp
  • salt to taste
  • water very little
  • oil 1/2tsp
