Eating gluten-free isn’t just a new diet trend. Many people are willingly opting for gluten-free food like oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, spelt, etc. Rice is a staple food grain in many Asian countries especially India. In south-Indian states, people start their days with rice. Either they will make dosa of fermented rice flour or some other rice dishes. Looking for some easy rice dishes to cook for your family? Check out these recipes:

Curd Rice

Steam the best basmati rice and set aside. In a pan, sauté some mustard seeds, star anise, cinnamon sticks, curry leaf, kokum in coconut oil. Once the spices become aromatic, add beaten curd. Add the rice and mix well. Serve in a bowl. Garnish with toasted peanuts, crispy curry leaves, fresh coriander leaves, and pomegranate seeds.

Coconut Rice

Start with cooking organic basmati rice in a mix of water and coconut milk. Use Daawat, which is the best basmati rice in India. In a separate pan, add mustard seeds, asafoetida, chana dal, and curry leaves and temper the spices until fragrant. Add some peanuts and roast until golden. Once the rice is cooked, add the rice and coat well in the spices. Finish with some toasted coconut flakes. This delicious preparation can be served with pudina and tomato chutney.

Lemon Rice

This preparation is quick to make with a few pantry staples. This tangy, sweet, and sour recipe tastes delicious accompanied by coconut chutney and papadam. Steam any long-grain rice in water until cooked and set aside. Sauté some peanuts in sesame oil until golden and crunchy. Add a handful of cashew nuts, mustard seeds, chana dal, mustard seeds, asafetida, and turmeric powder. When the spices turn aromatic, add cooked rice. Add freshly squeezed juice of 2 lemons and some zest. This dish can also be served for a light breakfast.

Tamarind Rice

Served during festivities, tamarind rice is a popular dish in Karnataka. This delicious dish is cooked with an authentic mix of spices, tamarind, and ginger. To make the tamarind pulp, soak the pods in hot water. Once soaked, squeeze out the pulp to make a thick pulp. Sauté some coriander seeds, mustard seeds, urad daal, chana daal, curry leaves, and peanuts. Add asafoetida and the tamarind pulp. Add a teaspoon of jaggery and cook for 10 minutes. When the mix thickens, add the cooked basmati rice and stir well. Serve hot with mint curd and papadam.
