MW Curryleaves Rice

Do you believe this wonderful looking curryleaves rice took just less than 30minutes to get ready in microwave oven??..I prepared making this great looking rice for our lunch yesterday with some fresh curry leaves which i picked during my last visit to Indian groceries. As i told earlier cooking rice in microwave oven goes for less than 20minutes, you will get prefectly cooked separate rice grains for your further use..Cooking herbs in microwave oven retains their green colour and the picture itself will prove it na..Easy breezy rice tastes fabulous when served along with some fried papads or spicy potato fries which suits prefectly for lunch box menu..

MW curryleaves rice

2cups Basmati rice (washed & soaked for 15minutes)
1cup Curry leaves
1tbsp Coriander seeds
1tsp Peppercorns
3nos Dry red chillies
1tbsp Sesame seeds
1tbsp Channa dal
1tsp Urad dal
Salt
Oil
ltsp Ghee
1tsp Mustard seeds+channadal

Transfer the soaked rice with 4cups of water in microwave safe bowl,cook in high power for 15-20minutes with lid closed(stir twice in between)..Once the rice get cooked,keep aside and let them get cool completely..

Take enough oil in microwave safe bowl,add the curry leaves,coriander seeds,sesame seeds,channadal,urad dal,dry red chillies,peppercorns,give a stir..Cook in microwave oven for 5minutes (stir twice)until a nice aroma comes out..Grind this spices with curryleaves with enough salt as fine powder,meanwhile take the ghee in a bowl,add the mustards and channadal,cook everything for 2-3minutes until they turns brown,add this tempered spices and curryleaves powder to the rice,mix everything well..

Enjoy with papads or potato fries..
