Sabsige Soppu Bhaat ( Fresh Dill Rice)

 

Sometime last week, I came across this article on the Internet talking about N.A.D.D. It stands for Nerd Attention Deficiency Disorder. The author says, it is a kind of deficiency in which people are always multi-tasking. Everything that the author was talking about, sounded so familiar to me!! I found myself nodding my head in agreement to everything he had written in the article :).....I figured that Naveen is hit with NADD too!!!! :D

Naveen is the kind who is always restless. He cannot sit idle even for a minute, without his laptop or the TV or his CD player or a book.... After returning home from work, the first thing that people would normally do is drink coffee, waste a few minutes doing nothing.... But the case is a little different in our house. The first thing he does is, logs  into his laptop, opens his Google reader and starts browsing through his list of blogs/mailbox/news!! While he is waiting for one of the pages to load, he takes his shoes and jacket off!!!! :D And while he is waiting up on something else next time, he remembers to ask me for a cup of coffee and something to eat!! :) Its sometimes fun to watch them hurrying with everything around, trust me.... Well, this isn't all... I only told you the fun part! On the other side, you can never win an argument against people with NADDs...they seem to have a solution or answer to anything you say, with proof and supporting documentation!!!!!!  :)))

THINK.... before you say anything in front of  NADDs. You might end up making a fool of yourself in front of someone who has a good reading habit and would, in all probability, have read about what you are talking!! ;)

Here's the link to the article I was talking about Rands In Response - NADD

Wondering what NADD has to do with Fresh Dill Rice??! Well, nothing!!!! I'm just yapping... :P

Will head straight to the recipe now.... Enjoi!!

Ingredients:

1 cup Basmati Rice/Long Grain rice (washed and soaked in water for about 30 mins)

1/2 - 3/4 bunch Fresh Dill leaves, chopped finely

1/2 cup Peas/carrots, fresh/frozen (While using dried peas, soak overnight and pressure cook until done)

1-2 tsp Ghee/Butter

1/2 tsp Red chili powder

1/2 tsp Haldi

1 tsp Lemon juice

Salt as per taste

Dry Masala:

1 tsp Jeera

1 tsp Coriander seeds

1 tsp Saunf

2" Cinnamon stick

5-7 cloves

1-2 Bay Leaves

10-12 Black pepper corns

1-2 Elaichi/Cardamoms, de skinned

Method:

  1. Powder all the ingredients for the dry masala in  a blender and keep aside; Make sure NOT to add any water while powdering.
  2. Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan; Add jeera and allow it to splutter. Drain out the water from the soaked rice; Add rice to the pan and saute for minute or two.
  3. Add the dry masala powder, peas and carrots and the chopped dill leaves; Pour about 1.5 cups of water, salt and mix well. Bring to boil and then cook covered on medium heat for about 10 mins or until done.
  4. Switch off the stove; Pour lemon juice and mix well. Serve hot with raita and enjoi!

Prep time: About 20-30 mins (excluding soaking time)

Serves: 2-3 people

NADD!! Are you taking about me? ;D
Yeah, I watch TV, read a book and blog all at the same time while getting up 100 times to check on what's cooking on the stove, while yelling at the kids to do their homework. Proof enough for you, I should be the president of that club if they have one!!

What is with men and their laptops? Ramya, the rice looks wonderful. I tried making it once (without the masala) but it turned bitter.
Do we have to roast the ingredients for the masala first?
