Spicy Garlic & Peanut Rice

on December 16, 2014

If you are a garlic lover, and have a strong liking to spicy food, then this one’s a must try !! I came across this recipe in Rak’s kitchen website, and had bookmarked it since quite some time. Last night I prepared this for dinner. Loved the aroma of garlic in the entire house 😀 Yeah am a die hard fan of garlic too. I just need garlic in almost all my dishes. This dish is quite flavourful and I can also name it as “Indian version of Schezwan rice” Well give it a try yourself and you will know for sure why I referred to Szhezwan rice 😛 . Even left over rice can be used for this, so next time you have some leftover rice you know what to do 😉 Isn’t it ?


  • Rice(Basmati) – 1 cup
  • Garlic cloves – 8 (mash each clove slightly)
  • Kashmiri chillies – 5
  • Red chillies – 2
  • Peanuts – 1/4 cup
  • Scraped coconut – 3 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder – a pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Curry leaves – a few
  • Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Oil – 2tsp + to temper


  • Wash and clean rice, and cook it partially (like how you make it for fried rice). Rice shouldn’t be too soft
  • In a pan, heat 2 tsp of oil and fry garlic till it is slightly golden, now add the peanuts and continue to saute for a minute more. Next add the red chillies (Both), scraped coconut and saute for a min more.
  • Cool this mixture, and then grind it to a coarse powder.
  • Take the cooked rice in a mixing bowl, add salt, turmeric powder and the ground powder and mix well.
  • In a pan, heat a tsp of oil, add the mustard seeds, once its splutters, Add the curry leaves and put this tempering the rice mixture and mix well.
  • Serve hot with yoghurt
