          Folks, if you want to make this dish sing for you, add a pinch of turmeric and half a t-spoon cumin seeds right along with the curry leaves.

                    Priya, the word for peanut is mumfali. I am Aruna and have tried few of your recipes and must say they are pretty good.

                      In Southern India, this dish is called lemon rice. Except that it's wayyy better.

                            Ok....if your mustard seeds don't pop once you put them in oil, you should go back to your mama and apologise for calling her a she knows that un-poped seeds on medium heat give a bad bitter flavour. That is why even with mustard oil, you cook only when it's smoking hot.

                                  I like your recipe ideas and your banter but watching you constantly touch your face and hair then just touch all the food and not washing your hands which ok it could be edited out but i dont think it is.. but a big rule of food safety is dont touch your face n hair

I love that Rick makes Mexican food. Are there any other cooks waiting in the wings to present their spin on food from their culture? Chinese? Filipino? Vietnamese? Thai?

We use same tarka/chonk/bhagaar on daal/lentils and it still tastes like popcorn. The buttery taste obviously comes from the ghee. But ghee itself doesnt make it taste like popcorn.
