  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp dry curry leaves

  • Wash and soak the rice in water for 1-2 hours. This is optional but helps with the boiling of rice. Drain water and boil 1/2 cup of rice in 4 cups of water till done. This will take about 10-12 minutes. Once the rice is boiled, drain water and fluff up the rice using a fork.
