This recipe serves 2 or a very hungry one.
3 cups of cooked rice, even leftovers will do. Sticky one is good too, infact many people use this recipe to get rid of sticky rice.
2 cups of yoghurt(plain) and non fat if you want I prefer normal one.
3 dried mexican chillies, depends on the size, hotness and your taste. You can use almost any hot pepper here. I have used Jalapeno, banana and those small ones, all are good. No need to go finding dry chillies though they are not hard to get.
A pinch of mustard seeds(can be replaced by cummin)
A pinch of Asafoetida (Available in any indian store)
Salt and sugar to taste.
1 tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil.
Mix the cooked rice with yoghurt, salt, sugar (a little bit more) and keep aside. Add some milk if too dry.
In a pan heat oil add the mustard seeds, let them crackle then add the chillies/peppers. Now remove the pan from the heat and add asafoetida. Add this oil to the rice. Mix properly. Garnish with dried red chillies.
