Homesick? try Mashed potatoes and Buttery Moist Rice

Well, there are times when you are HOMESICK, nostalgic, cribby and what not.
This ones a very peculiar recipe. And so Simple! Either you will like it , or you won’t. But worth a try.

downloadFor say two people,

Boil two and half cups of water in a big pot.

Add a cup of your favourite rice (smaller grains rice types are better)

Add half tsp salt

Once the rice feels all gooey and there is still water left switch off the flame/cooktop.

Keep aside in a hot casserole.

Parallely, boil 4 to 5 boiled potatoes with pinch of salt added till 3 whistles atleast in pressure cooker or till absolutely soft. Peel after dipping the potatoes in ice cold water , so peeling becomes easier.

Mash them well with your palms or a masher.

Add half a chopped raw onion to the mashed potato. Add bit of salt, few drops of mustard oil,  chopped coriander leaves.

Now, have this with the cooked extra moist/almost watery rice. Add butter or raw mustard oil to the hot cooked rice. With every bite of rice and mashed potato , have bits of raw green chilly.

Oh, you can also as an accompaniment have the poppy seeds recipe I shared the other day. Click here to know more
