Chef Way This fluffy, nutty rice dish includes split Bengal gram (split chickpeas), black lentils, curry leaves and asafoetida (a garlicky-like spice).

Easy Way Use canned chickpeas in place of the split Bengal gram, and swap onion, garlic and bay leaves for the curry leaves and asafoetida.

  1. 2 cups basmati rice (14 ounces)
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 3 tablespoons canola oil
  4. 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  5. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  6. 2 bay leaves
  7. 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  8. 1 cup salted roasted cashews
  9. 1 cup drained canned chickpeas
  10. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the rice and a generous pinch of salt and boil until barely al dente, about 15 minutes. Drain, shaking out the excess water. Return the rice to the pan. Cover tightly and cook over very low heat for 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork, cover and keep warm.
  2. In a large, deep nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the mustard seeds and cook over moderately high heat until they begin to pop, about 2 minutes. Add the onion, bay leaves and turmeric and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add the cashews and chickpeas and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the rice and lemon juice and toss to combine. Discard the bay leaves. Serve hot or warm.
