Talimpu Rice (Popannam)

Its my favourite rice item. Normally i use to prepare this breakfast item with left over rice. Simple ingredients and simple process to follow.


Cooked rice : 2 cups
Red chilli powder : 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Chopped onions : 1/2 cup
1 green chilli (chopped)
1 dry red chilli (cut into 2 pieces)
few chopped curry leaves
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp mustards
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp urid dal(minappappu)
1 tbsp chana dal (shanagapappu)
3 tbsp groundnuts
a pinch of turmeric powder

Method :
  1. First you mix the red chilli powder and salt to rice properly and keep aside. Rice should not in form of balls. (if it is, you seperate it with your hand gently before mixing of chilli powder and salt)
  2. Heat oil in wide vessel, once heat, add jeera and mustards; let them pop, add urid dal, chana dal and ground nuts, roast them for 2 minutes (dont burn them) on low heat.
  3. Next add chopped onions, green chillies, red chilli and curry leaves. Fry them till onions become lightly golden colour. Lastly add the turmeric powder, mix well.
  4. Then add mixed rice to above talimpu, mix well, cover with a lid, stirring between, let the rice becomes desired hot, then turn off the heat. hmmmmmmmmm.........yummy talimpu rice is ready. Its looks in yellow colour with super taste.

Note: While doing this talimpu rice, you should take care about the roasting groundnuts. They should roast correctly otherwise they may burn. It will change complete taste of talimpu rice and you should remember that for this total process, heat should be low.
