4 serving

Total time

50 minutes




  • 2 cups Rice (- cooked and cooled)
  • 1 tbsp Peanuts
  • 1 cup (1.25l) fish stock (Mixed Vegetables - (a combination of carrot, green beans, green peas etc))
  • 1 onion (- small, finely chopped)
  • 2 chilies (Green - slit (optional))
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • (1.25l) fish stock
  • 8 ~ 10 Curry leaves
  • to taste Salt
  • 3 tbsp Peanuts
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 red chili ((add more for spicier masala) Dry)
  • 2 ~ 3 cloves Garlic


  1. Make the Peanut-Sesame spice powder: Dry roast peanuts, sesame seeds, dry red chilies and garlic cloves until golden. Cool slightly and grind to a coarse powder.
  2. Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan, add chana dal, urad dal, peanuts, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves; once the seeds start to splutter and dals turn golden, add the onions and fry till they turn translucent.
  3. Next add green chilies and the mixed vegetables. Mix well, cover and cook till the veggies are tender. You can precook the veggies before adding here which will expedite the cooking process. I used frozen mixed vegetables, so it took no time for them to cook.
  4. Once the veggies are tender, add turmeric and the peanut spice powder, mix well. Add cooked rice and mix until well combined. Serve hot!!!
