Making Awesome and Healthy Peanut-Rice in about 10 minutes (step-by step guide)

Peanut Rice
10- Minute Peanut Rice

This exploration started when I was back at home for vacations and my Mom wasn’t around for the day. I had to cook myself something and that’s when in my mind, I stumbled on the idea to make Peanut-Rice. It’s easy and quick! Here’s how to make it:


Rice, butter/ghee, turmeric, table salt, garam masala, peanuts, and other dry-fruits (optional), coriander leaves (optional)

  1. For two people, take about a medium bowl of rice (of course, your appetite might vary) and clean them thoroughly.
  2. Rinse the rice and soak it in little water for about 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, warm up you cauldron or any other cooking utensil of your choice, for about 2 minutes. It is preferred that there’s no moisture left in the utensil by the time this step is complete.
  4. Add ghee or butter to the warm cauldron and let it cook for about 2 minutes.
  5. Add peanuts, cashew, almonds, resins (everything but peanuts is optional in this step) till they start browning up a bit and then add all the spices one by one. This might take about 2-3 minutes I made it with just peanuts and resins the first time, but it was yummy nevertheless.
  6. Add the now moist rice and stir well to mix the contents well. Add a little water to make the texture of your choice. Cover it with a lid and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Keep the lid closed for a while. Remember, steam-cooking is always the best for rice.
  8. Garnish with coriander leaves before serving!
    You’re done!
