Theme: Miscellaneous – Rice dish using leftover rice
Dish: Soy Methi Dill Rice
I sometimes crave for simple and easy dishes that don’t take too long to cook and are filling and tasty. Even though I love spicy and masaledar (does this translate to more spicy in English?), sometimes all you want is food with simple flavors. Today’s dish is just that and much more in terms of healthy ingredients used.
Recipe is courtesy of my new found Telugu cooking show. This dish is a great way to use up leftover rice and if you really want to amp up the health quotient of this dish, use brown rice instead of white or even better use quinoa or any other whole grain.
It has soy in the form of granules or TVP, methi (fenugreek leaves) and dill leaves (called ‘soya’kura in Telugu). I’m not a big fan of dill, because I feel it is a little strong to my palate, but I didn’t even notice its presence. It blended with the methi and the taste was very pleasant.
This dish takes just minutes to put together if you have all the components ready. So soak the soy granules in hot water 10 minutes before starting to cook and have all the veggies chopped up and ready to go. Perfect dish for a quick weeknight meal.
