I’m in the process of cleaning up my fridge as my long-waited vacation to India is just hours away. I’m left with couple of onions and few tomatoes which is good enough for onion baath. When we were kids after coming from school at 3.30 in evening my mom use to give us rice, mostly mix rice as we use to take lunch boxes and around 6 pm she use to give us light snack. Onion baath is one of our favorites, we use to eat it with plain yogurt with out making any fuss.
1 cup cooked rice (sona masoori/basmati)
1 large onion (diced)
1 medium tomato (diced)
2-3 green chilles (chopped)
1 tbsp veg oil
1 tsp channa dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/4th tsp mustard seeds
Big pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste
Few curry leaves
Few coriander leaves to garnish
Heat oil in a deep skillet, add channa dal, urad dal, mustard seeds and fry until the dals turn into golden brown and mustards seeds pop, add green chillies, curry leaves and onions. Sauté onions until soft and transparent add turmeric, tomatoes and cooked until the tomatoes are soft and mushy. Turn the heat to low add salt and cooked rice, stir well adjust the taste, garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve warm with plain yogurt.
Notes and Tips
You can add cashew nuts or peanuts and also chilli powder instead of green chillies; this is how my mom makes :)
