With temperatures hovering in 60’s F, waiting with a bated breath for Spring to be here bringing new life with all the blooms and blossoms! I am so excited to make all the plans of which all places I could visit during Spring and the Summers, but equally exciting before that is my mid-term exams this week and yet I am writing a post, addiction I guess ??
What comes to mind when you think of Indian food?, Gourmet cooking right ! Spices and tempering !! Well there are lot more recipes and dishes that don’t see the day in the Indian restaurants here. Today’s recipe is a simple curd(yogurt) rice combined with all things raw. This recipe is called Bhuthi Bhaat, bhuthi in konkani means food packet and just as the name goes, it the most common food in and around North Karnataka that is a travel food. Every time we went on picnics or travelled, this was always packed. Very simple and very refreshing with raw spring onions, fresh peas, garbanzo beans, ginger and garlic..

Ingredients:
2 cups precooked/leftover rice
1 cup yogurt
2 cups spring onions, chopped (use 1/2 cup if using regular onions)
1 big garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 green chili, minced
1/4 cup fresh ( peas + garbanzo beans), chana, vatana
salt to taste

Preparation Method:
1. Use a pre cooked rice or a left over rice from previous day. If using a freshly cooked rice, then cool it before preparing this rice.
2. Combine all the ingredients mentioned above and mix
3. Serve with chutney/pickle on the side.

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Serves: 2

Note: If carrying it during travelling, instead on 1 cup yogurt, add 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/2 cup milk.
Unlike the traditional curd rice in other cuisines, this recipe does not call for tempering, but could do so for a variation.
The spring onions can be replaced with less quantity of regular onions

I definitely think gourmet when I think Indian - probably because I've yet to really successfully make it myself. This looks fantastic!
