This is a good recipe to make if you have left over boiled basmati rice. It is also an ideal tupperware meal as its quite complete on its own and very nourishing. You can add more vegetables to this but my husband is a bit fussy where his veggies are concerned so i just stick to what he likes to eat. You can serve it with a simple cucumber raita , papadums and indian pickles and you will be more than satisfied!! Here is my simple recipe and i hope you all like it, try it out and give me feedback:)
1 cup of boiled white basmati rice
1 onion chopped fine
1/2 cup of boiled green peas ( i used the frozen one)
a few curry leaves (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of ginger garlic paste
1/2 teaspoon each of Nitu Didi cumin seeds, turmeric powder and garam masala powder
1 red tomato chopped
a little of chopped coriander, mint leaves
1 green chilli chopped
salt to taste
2 tablespoons of butter
Heat the butter in a pan taking care not to burn it and add the cumin seeds and curry leaves and leave it for a few seconds till the cumin seeds sizzle. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for a few seconds and then add the chopped onion and salt. Sautee till the onions are transparent and then add the green chilli and the green peas. Add the tomato and all the spices and cook till everything is well blended and the tomatoes soften. Add the rice and cook covered till rice is well heated. Serve hot.
