How to Make Savoury Sesame rice

  • Dry roast coriander seeds, sesame seeds, fenugreek seeds and dry red chillies separately until each of them turns darker. Keep aside.
  • When cool, grind the above ingredients together into a reasonably fine powder (it does not have to be ultra fine).
  • In a large pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds and split black gram lentil.
  • When the mustard seeds splutter and the lentil starts turning red, add asafoetida to it.
  • Lower the heat and add the cooked rice and salt to taste.
  • Finally add the ground powder and mix well.
  • Serve hot with curry of choice, salad of choice or just plain yogurt and papads.
