This tangy, sour rice is easy to make and one of my favourites. It's long grain rice spiced with mustard seed, cumin seed, fresh curry leaves, turmeric, tamarind and lime for something delightfully different!
Fresh curry leaves and tamarind paste are available in South Asian shops.
Excellent recipe,Tasted very much like nut pilau from the indian takeaway. - 20 Sep 2010
It is easy to make sometimes I have difficulty with Indian cookery as I'm a spin and toss cook and so getting careful with measurements (since I am not sure what I am doing) makes it complicated for me. with this one I decided to pay attention to the recipe, no additions or omitions, but I did add more cashews (love 'em) and a few less curry leaves (had to go to a specialty shop for those) and a couple less peppers as I am not fond of TOO much heat. the result was sour and tangy as you said, which I am glad you did otherwise I wouldn't have been able to describe the tast combination. and I always love cooking cumin seeds the way they pop around the pan. thanks so much! hope to see more of your recipes. - 14 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
