This is my entry for "Whole grains JFI" hosted by Tastypalettes.
Of late i have been cutting back on white rice and adding more of brown rice into my diet. Since my household is filled with picky eaters i have to look for more ways to make brown rice fun and tasty to eat. This recipe is also very easy to prepare.
1 cup Pinto beans
11/2 Cup Brown rice
1 Tbsp cumin
6 nos green chillies(chopped)
1 large onion (chopped)
1 Tsp Pepper powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 Tbsp red chilly powder
1 Tomato (chopped)
1 sprig curry leaves
2 Tbsp oil
Salt to taste .
Pressure cook 11/2 cups of brown rice with 2 cups of water and set aside.
Heat oil in a kadai and add cumin, when it splutters add curry leaves onion and green chilly.
When the onion becomes golden brown add the pinto beans(strain and wash the pinto beans before adding).
Add salt , cover the kadai and let it cook till the beans are tender(should be about 3-5 minutes)
Add very little water if necessary.
Now add the tomato and rest of the masala.
Add the cooked rice and saute well, keep covered in low heat for another minute or two and serve hot.
