A quick, classic South Indian rice dish that is both tart and spicy.
Start by preparing the rice either in a rice cooker or on the stove top, according to package directions. I use a bit less water than the package instructs, so that the rice is not mushy. You want the rice grains to be separate once cooked. When done, set aside.
In a large, deep skillet or pan over medium heat heat the olive oil, mustard seeds, channa dal, hing powder and minced chilies. Cook over medium heat until the mustard seeds start to sputter.
Then add the onion and turmeric powder and cook and stir until onion is translucent. Add the cooked rice and stir to coat rice well with the entire mixture.
Add in the curry leaves and lemon juice and cover the pan. Cook/steam for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl, give it a good stir, top with the sesame oil and toasted peanuts and serve!
Enjoy with chutney, mango pickle or yogurt!
Totally filling. I mean, one whole squash and 2 little eggs will easily feed 2. Also, the ingredients are so simple—this dish uses things we all have (or can easily get). Easy to fill and less messy than the other stuffed dishes! Sometimes my rice/quinoa/meat stuffed veggies end up spilling out and making giant messes. This sits wonderfully inside the acorn squash center and bakes just perfectly!
