Garlic Rice

January 9, 2008 at 6:04 pm 8 comments

About two months back when we were moving to a new house ,one of my friend Ashwini has made this garlic rice for us and sent it home.I liked it and made this with my own adaptations.My frined did not add coconut paste and grated carrot.This rice can be made even with left over rice.To make this rice,


Grind to a paste:
2 tsps grated coconut
1/4 tsp cumin
2 green chillies
For popu/tempering:
5-6 cashew pieces
3 or 4 garlic flakes finely chopped
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal

Other ingredients:

1 cup cooked rice
1 baby carrot grated
  • In a pan,add and fry all the popu/tempering ingredients till garlic,cashew and dal are golden brown.
  • Add ground paste and fry for a minute.
  • Add grated carrot and stir.
  • Add cooked rice and stir.
  • Season with salt and serve with yogurt.

I am sending this as my entry for “Think Spice – Think Garlic” event hosted by Sunita.

    Hello Madhavi,

    In the last few months, you may remember receiving an email invitation to become a part of the Foodbuzz Featured Publisher Program. With all the recipe-writing and food photography to be completed, we know emails can easily get lost in the shuffle, so Foodbuzz would like to re-extend our offer of inviting you to be a part of our food blogger network. I would love to send you more details about the program, so if you are interested, please email me at

    Rice is always my favorite sidedish and I love cooking with garlic. So without even trying I know this will be one of my favs to make.
