Karuvepillai Sadam/Curry leaves Rice

                  This one is a healthy one pot meal which can be made in a jiffy and is perfect rice to make the kids eat the curry leaves.Why kids alone even we also many of us use to throw away curry leaves which is in the dish.But in this rice we wont be able to do that as we use to grind the curry leaves and won't be able to find it.Also if we look at the rice no one will believe that its curry leaves rice.This one i did in the morning for my hubby's lunch box.So some how i manged to take step wise pics but the final picture was not able to take properly as my hubby was in a hurry for the office.So after packing in the lunch box i just clicked one final pic.
      Ooooohhhhh no just now i felt a mild tremor while uploading this recipe.Furniture's started shaking.But the tremor was not severe in Bangalore.

Ingredients :

Cooked rice1 cup
Shallots 15 nos
Tomato 2 nos
Garlic 7 pods(optional)
Salt Req

To Grind :

Curry leaves 1/4 cup(tightly packed)
Garlic 4 pods
Red chillies 8-10 nos
Tamarind Small Lemon sized
Grated Coconut 2 1/2 tbsp

Seasoning :

Oil Req
Cinnamon 1 inch piece
Cardamom 2-3 nos
Cloves 1-2 nos
Cashew 5 nos

Method :

1.    Grind all the ingredients given under the grinding column to a paste.

2.    Cook the rice and keep separately.Now in a wok do the seasoning and add the onions and fry till tender.

3.   Now add the chopped tomato and fry for few min's.

4.   Then add the ground paste to the tomato.

5.   After adding the ground paste fry till the raw smell leaves and becomes as a thick paste.

6.    Once the paste consistency came switch off the flame and add the cooked rice and mix well.

7.    Now serve with any kind of raita.

Notes :

1.    We felt only very mild taste of curry leaves.If want to fell the taste nicely add more curry leaves accordingly.

2.    If the tomato is too sour can reduce the tamarind.

3.    Can even have with rotis/dosa.

This is a very new version of karuvepilai sadam, I usually make it as powder with urad dal and red chillies and make rice, this should be lip smacking! Wish I have this for lunch now :)
