Rated as 4.14 out of 5 Stars

"This yummy rice is an excellent way to use up leftover cooked white rice. It tastes awesome hot or cold, especially hot on cold winter nights. Best of all, it takes all of ten minutes to make."

  1. In a heavy pan, heat the clarified butter over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds; it should be just hot enough for the seeds to crackle, but not burn. Stir in ginger, garlic, cinnamon, green and red chile peppers, and curry leaves. Cook, stirring frequently, for like 30 seconds.
  2. If rice is cold, add rice to pan with a little water, and cover. The steam will separate the rice. When rice is warm, or if adding warm rice, stir rice with spices. Reduce heat, mix in yogurt, and heat through.


  • Note
  • The red chilly and cinnamon are simply for flavour. Do not eat them.

This came our pretty good - not as good as my mother's. Next time, I will add more yogurt and let it sit out for a bit before using to get it more sour.

This recipe looks excellent and authentic, but I'm sad because I've never heard of fresh curry leaves, nor do I know where I could buy them.
