DayPlanner-28-29-30-Mar12-NormalDays

DayPlanner-28-29-30-Mar12-NormalDays:

28th, 29th and 30th as I had been to office it was a normal food.

28th: I planned to make chappatis and palak paneer. But hubby told let us have chappatis with palya and chutney. So I went his words.

29th: He came home early and brought palak, we had Palak pappu and Rice.

30th: As I went to my SIL house and came I brought ridgegourd pappu made by her and prepared pulachaaru.

As it was year end hubby had a very hectic work schedule and couldn't literally concentrate much on things.

Breakfast on 28th was: Lemon Rice and Curd Rice


Lemon Rice:


As shown in above figure the ingredients are:
Salt - 2 tsp
Cooked rice - 1/2 glass
Roasted Groundnut - few
Cashewnuts - few
Green chillies -4
Curry leaves - few
Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
Channa Dhal - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - extracted from 1 lemon
Oil - 2 tbsp
Turmeric - 1 tsp

Method:
Heat oil in a kadai once its hot roast cashewnuts and keep it aside
Take it out and in the same oil add mustard seeds once it splutters add urad dhal, channa dhal, groundnuts, curry leaves
Once the dhal becomes red add green chillies and mix well
Add powdered salt and mix well again
Before switching off the stove add 1 tsp of turmeric and mix well
Once this mixture gets cooled add lemon juice and mix well
Spread the rice in a big bowl so that it becomes little cool
Put the above mixture and mix well

Curd Rice:
Salt - 2 tsp
Cooked Rice - 1/2 glass
Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
Channa Dhal - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Curds - 1 cup (which appears like a bowl)
Green Chillies - 2

Method:
Heat oil in a kadai once its hot add mustard seeds when it splutters add urad dhal, channa dhal, curry leaves, green chillies and saute well
Remove it from the stove on the cooled rice, add salt and curds and mix well

Curd Rice is ready.

Note: I first prepared tadka for curd rice and used the same kadai for lemon rice. So the time to heat the kadai for the second time gets saved.

Oh God, that black colored one in the photo is mustard seeds and cumin seeds which i have kept for both lemon rice and curd rice.
