      Don't overcook the rice.
    6. 6
      Keep aside.
    7. 7
      Heat oil in a frying pan on medium flame.
    8. 8
      Toss in the cumin and mustard seeds.
    9. 9

      Once they stop, add the red chillies, curry leaves, bay leaf and peanuts.

      Awesome! My family loves this recipe, and it's easy to do. I put the cooked rice and seasonings into a covered Pyrex, then stick it into a hot oven to finish off - the oven's usually on to cook the curry anyway!
