South Indian Stir Fry Rice

This tongue-tickling rice treat is prepared with readily-available ingredients, but has an unforgettable flavour and pleasing texture.

The key ingredients, which endow this South Indian Stir-Fry Rice with such irresistibility, are sesame seeds and peanuts. These ingredients are perfectly complementary to the rustic tanginess of tamarind, and together, they make this stir-fried rice recipe a perfect winner!

Eat with Cucumber Pachadi if you wish to mellow down the spicy flavours.
