Peanut Rice
A crunchy, simple, and tasty rice!
When I have left-over rice and have only less time to cook, without any hesitation, I cook this rice. I did not know that with very few ingredients, I could make a tasty rice. While eating this rice, in between when I bite the peanuts….wow…just love the crunchiness of the peanuts.You can use either black pepper powder or white pepper powder.
White pepper powder gives somewhat a bitter and salty taste. So, if you are using white pepper powder for the first time, add little by little and see whether you like taste or else go for black pepper powder. I am sure you would also like this crunchy and tasty rice. Thanks to Chef Jacob for sharing a very simple recipe.
