Beans Rice

I usually try this simple rice for lunch box, whenever I feel lazy to cook 2-3 dishes. Its wholesome to have it with vegetables. Can try the same recipe with carrot, beetroot, cabbage, potato, etc.

Cooked rice - 6 cups
Beans - 3 cups, finely chopped
Onions - 1, medium sized, chopped
Curry leaves - few
Green chillies - 3-4, cut into small pieces
Fennel seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Ginger paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Ghee - 2 tablespoons

Heat oil in a pan. Add ghee, fennel seeds, onions and fry for 3 minutes.

Then add ginger and garlic paste, curry leaves, green chillies and fry until onions turn golden brown.

Once it is done, add chopped beans and cook until beans are soft. Add cooked rice, salt and mix well.

Serve it hot with papad.

Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves 2-3 persons
