  • 10 curry leaves or 1 sprig

How to make Khatti Kanki

  1. Wash the rice properly. Soak it for nearly 30 minutes in the 2 cups of water. Strain the rice in a sieve, saving the water.
  2. In a large pan, heat the ghee. Add to it cloves, peppercorns, cinnamon stick, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, sesame seeds. When the seeds begin to splutter, add the curry leaves, garlic, chilli and ginger paste.
  3. Stir fry a bit in the ghee and add the rice. Add the turmeric powder, salt and the saved water plus the 4 cups of water. Mix well.
  4. Let the rice cook over gentle heat. Cover it partially otherwise the water may boil over. Stir it gently occasionally and cook till the rice is done.
  5. Add the sour yogurt and mix well.
  6. Add the coriander to it and serve with garlic chutney, ready made pickle masala or a pickle of your choice. You can serve it with dry potato sabji too.

My Tip:

Serve with crunchy french fries. Make thin french fries. In a pan heat a bit of oil. Add to it chopped garlic, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, french fries and salt. Mix well. Let it cook over low heat till it becomes crunchy.
