Masala Rice


My favourite way of using the leftover rice for a quick and easy and ofcourse tasty lunch.
This rice is made in different ways.
It is called by various names too!
But the end product is somewhat quite similar!

Whenever I make plain rice for dinner, it has to remain!
For I purposely make some extra so I can make masala rice the next day!

What I do to make this Rice is-

Slice an Onion
Slit a couple of green chillies lengthwise
Chop a handful of coriander leaves
Slice a capsicum, if I have one

Heat oil in a pan.
Splutter 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.
Add 1/4 tsp Hing, 1/4 tsp Turmeric, a few Curry Leaves and the slit Green Chillies.
Then drop in the sliced Onion.
Let it turn pink.
Then put the sliced capsicum.
Add salt.
Saute for around 3-4 minutes.
Then add 2 cups of cooked rice.
Mix well.
Saute for another 5 minutes.
Garnish it with coriander leaves.
Sprinkle juice of half a lime for a tangy taste.
Serve hot with pickle or curd.

It tastes great!
