For today's lunch box it was a delicious Aloo Roast Rice. Making this was really so simple that I was thinking why I never thought of it before. After making Chana Rice, I thought I should make use of Pav Baji masala. I remembered that Pav Bhaji in Sandwich really made such a difference to the taste.
As usual cooking potatoes in microwave is such an easy taste that I get so upset when someone says they use pressure cooker for boiling potatoes. Anyway coming to the dish, I was really happy that Konda liked this one a lot and said it was spicy enough for her.
Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Potato - 1 big
Onion - 1/2 medium
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
Pav Bhaji Masala - 1/4 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Kasturi Methi few
Oil - 1 - 2 tsp
Ghee 1/4 tsp
How to make Aloo Rice
Have precooked rice ready.
Wash and make marks on the potatoes, microw for 6 mins. Once done, add water and peel the skin.
Heat a pan with oil, saute the onion julinnes till it turns brown. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till it's cooked.
Then add the boiled potatoes and roast well. Sprinkle the salt, pav baji masala, turmeric powder and red chilli powders. Simmer till the potatoes absorb the masalas.
Finally add the rice and combine everything well. Simmer again and saute for couple of mins, sprinkle the kasturi methi and coriander leaves.
Just before removing the rice, add ghee if your kid likes it.
