channa-dal rice …

–  channa dal rice  –

This is one of my FAVORITE rice dishes ever!!

I truly believe that healthy food does not have to be boring and flavorless . . .

this one definitely proves my point! 🙂

 I was originally inspired by several different rice recipes . . .

adding a few touches of my own along the way.

This is such an easy recipe . . .

and it has so many of my favorite ingredients.

It is pure, simple, and has a wonderful mix of textures and flavors . . .

with – cashews . . . channa dal . . . jalapenos . . .

and an amazing mix of spices!!

Channa Dal Rice – Ingredient List . . .

2 cups cooked basmati rice

1/4 cup channa dal

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup chopped cashews

2 jalapeño peppers minced

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

1/2 teaspoon salt

pinch of saffron

1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

2 dried, or 3 fresh curry leaves, or 4 frozen, chopped into small pieces

2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

lemon zest

The Toppings . . .

fresh green onions

lemon zest

fresh coconut

fresh cilantro

To start with measure out each of the ingredients . . .

and then mix the spices in a bowl and set aside.

 

Make the rice and allow to cool with the lid off.

Boil some water in a pan for the channa dal . . .

take the pan off the heat, add the channa dal, and soak the channa dal for approx 45 minutes . . .

then drain off the water.

On medium-high to high heat – saute the cashews and channa dal

in a little Olive Oil for about 4 to 5 minutes

add in the peppers for a couple minutes . . .

and then add in the spices for a couple minutes more . . .

( be sure to stir consistently while allowing time here and there to brown nicely )

Cool it down for a bit and then add the mixture to the cooked rice

along with the lemon juice and zest . . .

and then mix thoroughly . . .

allowing for the rice to obtain a little color from the spices . . .

put into individual serving bowls . . .

and then top it off with some of your favorites toppings . . .

here are a few of mine . . .

crisp green onions . . . fresh coconut . . . tangy lemon zest. . .

and of course – one of my very favorites . . . cilantro!!

Now it is time to enjoy your rice – my very favorite part!

Be sure to make an extra batch for leftovers . . .

if you don’t – you will wish you had!! 🙂

 Hope you try this wonderful little rice dish!

until next time . . .

. . . . . . .

food dreams and a kiss . . .

from my kitchen . . . to yours!!

throwback thursday – white winter memories …

I love the idea of Throwback Thursdays . . .

as it gives me the perfect reason to look back through old photographs!!

Here is a look at some white winter memories . . .

Ski family

Our family was always out in the snow in winter . . .

because … well … that is just what we did in winter . . .

We.  Played.  In.  The.  Snow.

Tubing down the hill with mom ...

Mom started me out at a very early age . . .

Mom and Dad and the boys

just the same way my parents did with my two older brothers . . .

Mom, Paul, Marie and little Dan

they even brought my grandparents out to join in the fun from time to time!

. . . . .

In those days – the neighborhood boys would hang with the dads . . .

because that was a cool thing to do back then!

Dad skiing off jump

Here is my dad going over a ski jump!!

I have always loved the fact that he was young at heart . . .

and has continued to be so throughout the years!

Dad and the boys skiing

Here is a photo of my dad with my two brothers years later!

These types of family photos would continue to be taken year . . . after year . . .

after year!!!

Dad skiing

With the beautiful mountains in the background . . . and the blue sky above . . .

my parents looked as cool as can be . . .

Mom skiing

this photo is one of my favorites of my mother!!

Yes – I do remember these mountains well . . .

the views from the tops of the lifts . . .

the smell of the snow . . . the hot chocolate breaks . . .

and the thick honey-butter bread at the lodge at Sundance

at the end of the day!

But most of all . . . I remember spending time with my family . . .

and the memories that we shared together!

I also remember . . . when my mom decided to quit going to the hill . . .

she leaned over to me and quietly told me that she never really liked being cold . . .

which as I am getting older I understand more and more . . .

I also remember skiing with my father last February – he was 91 years old . . .

I have to say – I was more than a bit worried!!  But – he made it through the weekend safe . . .

and once again – we have memories that will last a life time!!

And if we were not up in the mountains . . .

Ice Boating

well – we were on the lake . . . Ice Boating!!

Or – some of us were perhaps Ice Skating!!

I am so grateful for all this time we were able to spend together!!

How lucky my brothers and I were to have such fun . . .

loving . . . and active parents . . .

who went out of their way to create such memories for all of us!!

I will be forever thankful!!

Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season . . .

Peace, Love, and Joy – to each and every one of you!!!
