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,
