Left Over Chana Masala Rice

Last week, We tried this left over chana masala rice with Omlet. After our dinner chapathi with chana masala, next day had little bit of left over gravy have no idea what to cook with this little bit of gravy then my Hubby gave me an idea to cook something different with rice n veggies. Usually, i make rotis for next day also but now winter are here we like to have fresh n hot food. This was the first time i tried this rice came out very yummy with simple handy veggies. Here, is the recipe for the Left Over Chana Masala Rice as follows,


Ingredients:

1.Left Over Chana Masala Gravy - 1 cup
2.Cooked Basmathi Rice - 2 cups
3.Finely cubed Green bell pepper - 1/2 portion
4.Finely diced carrots and potatoes - 4 tbsp each
5.Frozen sweet corn - 3 tbsp
6.Finely chopped tomato - 1 medium
7.Chopped onions - 1/2 medium
8.Canola oil - 2 tbsp
9.Cumin/ jeera seeds - 1/2 tsp
10.Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
11.Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
12.Salt as reqd




Preparation:

1.Heat oil in the non-stick frying pan, season the cumin seeds follow with chopped onions saute it for a while till it turns transparent. Put the finely chopped potatoes in the pan, fry it nicely till it turns golden brown ( chop the potatoes finely then only it will cook in short time).
2.Then add chopped bell pepper, frozen corn and carrots, fry it for 5 mts ( no need to cook fully).
3.Put all the spice powders and salt, mix it well cook in medium flame follow with chopped tomatoes.
4.Close the pan with the lid allow the tomatoes cook to mash ( oil will leave around the edges).
5.Now add the chana masala gravy to the frying pan, stir it gently if oil need pour around the edges.
6.Leave it to cook till it turns half the portion of gravy.
7.Mix the cooked Basmathi rice to the pan and toss it well. After 5 mts of tossing tightly pack the rice like in the picture and close the pan with the lid leave it to cook for 5 mts.
8.Now the hot spicy left over chana masala rice is ready to serve with Omlet.

I am sending this Spicy yummy Chana Masala rice to Niloufer's -  Twenty - 20 cooking Event.
