Indian pulihora, also known as tamarind rice, gave us the idea for this basmati rice that’s aromatic with spices and ginger and finished with tangy lime. For simplicity, crush the mustard and cumin seeds together. Use a mortar and pestle or the bottom of a small skillet, or pulse them a couple times in a spice grinder. For some fresh-chili heat, add a minced jalapeño or serrano when adding the spices, ginger and rice to the shimmering oil. This a great side to Garam Masala and Tamarind Roasted Chicken or Curried Shrimp Cakes

I made this last night. Its tastes pretty good and very easy to make. I have added fresh cilantro and chopped roasted nuts. The only thing I thought it needed is a bit more of moisture. I think I will add butter next time.
