peanut rice recipepeanut rice recipe | groundnut masala rice | lunch box recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. simple and easy peanut flavoured rice recipe which is typically prepared with leftover rice for breakfast or lunch boxes. even though the rice is termed as groundnut masala rice, but has a string flavour of other spices including sesame seeds and dal. the combination of these seeds make it unique and delicious rice recipe.

previously, i had shared the capsicum rice recipe which was a combination of masala/spice mix with veggies like capsicum and onions. the reason i am highlighting it because the peanut rice is loosely based out of it. i have almost used the same peanut masala or groundnut masala for this recipe with a subtle variation to it. i even thought of adding finely sliced onions to it but gave the idea at the last moment. the main reason was to make it no onion no garlic recipe. apparently, peanut rice is also served in couple of south indian temples as nivedyam and prasadam. therefore even i wanted to keep it authentic and without any variation to it.

groundnut masala rice

the recipe is extremely simple without much complicated steps, yet some tips, recommendations and serving ideas for peanut rice recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use dry cooked rice without any moisture for this recipe. ideally, leftover cooked rice is optimal, but you can use freshly cooked rice by cooling it down. secondly, you can prepare the spice masala mix well ahead and use it to mix it with rice whenever you require. but make sure to store them in a cool dry place like in refrigerator. lastly, groundnut masala rice can be served as it is without any side but it tastes amazing with fried papadams and fryums.
