Banana Chips Rice Mix


I really cant have sambhar, rasam and curd for lunch all 7 days of a week. It makes the though of lunch so boring and exhaustive. I am a person who craves for variety and wouldn't mind anything to break the monotony. oops I can hear my MIL saying "as if you eat so much". Yup I am a quality food person and not a quantity food person. aahaa which just means that I love variety but eat just too less.

On one such occasion last week, I opted to have some podi rice to make the cooking and eating simple. Mom went through her super large diary of recipes to pick this one for me so that I can easily make it and blog about it too :P Oh yeah, it has become that way these days. Cooking is just not for eating but for blogging too ;) Quickly made this podi and trust me it tasted very interesting with a crunchy texture :)

If you too have been tired with long cooking sessions, opt for this one and finish the magic in a jiffy :)



Plantain chips - 1/2 cup
Moong dhall - 1 tblsp
Channa dhall - 1/2 tblsp
Thoor dhall - 1/2 tblsp
Red chillies - 4
Garlic - 4 pods
Salt - for taste
Jeera - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 10



In a dry pan roast the 3 dhalls, jeera, red chillies and the curry leaves separately, one followed by the other.

Take a tsp of oil in pan and fry the garlic pods.

Now add all this to the mixie along with the banana chips and salt and powder it coarsely.

Add this to rice and mix well. Serve hot :)

Try to make the podi just before use. The chips gives a crispy texture to the podi which will not be the same if stored and used.
