Onion Rice | Vengaya Sadam

>>  Tuesday, September 18, 2012

When I decided to make dishes with onions as main, I had to obviously make this Onion Rice. My office cook made this the first time and all of us had liked it so much. I had to try this out on Konda, surprisingly she liked it too. Though in most dishes she picks out the onions, she somehow managed to eat this rice completely. 

The taste, the easy and everything else compliments this rice and you have one quick lunch box recipe to reckon. However my colleague was hesitant with making this as this rice will surely call for more than a teaspoon of oil and she was so much against it. Anyway I managed not to add so much oil as it might not be so good for Konda who will end up eating cold food. 

Ingredients Needed:

Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Onions - 2 big
Channa dal -2 tsp
Roasted Groundnut - 2 tsp
Curry leaves
Red chili powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 3 tsp

How to make Onion rice

Wash and soak rice for 15 mins. Cook and keep it aside.

Wash and chop the onions finely.

Heat a non stick pan with oil. Temper with mustard, Urad dal, curry leaves, channa dal and ground nuts. Saute for couple of mins.

Then add the chopped onions. Saute will till the onions are done. Then add the red chili powder, turmeric powder and combine everything well. Simmer for few mins.

Finally add the cooked rice and combine everything well.

Onion rice is ready to be served


Since we add onions, this rice will be best only for about 4 hrs. Make sure you don't keep this out for long.
