Ivygourd Peanut Rice

A quick, simple and highly flavourful one pot meal with ivygourds aka Kovakkai. Peanuts plays an important role in the spice mix i used to flavour this rice. Sorry guys i couldnt stop myself posting dishes with peanuts coz am hosting this month's cooking with seeds event with peanuts as star ingredient. Thanks to each and everyone for their contribution for this month's CWS event, since am bit hooked with few stuffs at home,i couldnt able to visit  all the linked posts till today for this event.

Coming to this quick rice, if you have cooked leftover rice and peanut spice mix i used in this rice already aside, you can very well finish preparing this rice within less than 15minutes, obviously you can also go for your choice of veggies somehow i felt saying that ivygourd, brinjal and bottlegourd works wonder for making this podi rice.You can carry very well this rice in your lunch box and dont forget to serve this delicious,flavourful rice simply with chips or fryums.Sending to my event CWS-Peanuts hosted by me.
