Having said that, I always looked for ideas on how to get her eat the rice. She hardly ever eats on regular basis. So there is always a struggle to find simple dishes that suits her taste, yet easy to make. I was sure that the best bet to do it was to send it for school as she can't get back an untouched box.
During my recent visit to my sil, I was asking her what she packs for my nephew and niece. Both being a year older and younger to Konda, I was most interested to know their eating habits. Of course I knew already that they aren't so fussy about food as mine was. It was a most interesting conversation and I was right then with a pen and paper jotting down the ideas that were pouring. My sil was most amused that I should resort to pen and paper myself. Somehow the thought that I can also be short of ideas was beyond her apprehension. Little does she know that the truth is far from it.
Anyway she said her kids eat the rice she ruffles up and mostly that's also what she packs for themselves. I can't be so adventurous to assume that hubby dear will like to eat this rice. But then my object of interest was Konda and I don't mind that extra work preparing this rice might be in the hectic early hours.
This dish can very well be made with leftover rice for yourself, of course with more spice added.
Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Onions - 1/4 cup
Capsicum - 1/2 cup
Green Chili - 1 medium
Cumin Seeds / Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder as per taste
Salt to taste
Soya Sauce - 1/4 tsp or less
Soak the rice for 10 - 15 mins, pressure cook for 3 whistles or till done (as per your cooker instructions)
Heat a non stick pan with oil. Add cumin seeds, when they splutter, add onions, green chilies and saute well. Then add capsicum julienne and simmer.
Add ginger garlic paste, saute well. Then add the cooked rice and combine everything well. Add pepper, salt and check the taste.
Finally add few drops of soya sauce and cover with lid.
I wasn't planning on adding that soya sauce, it was a last moment inclusion. So only few drops were added. The taste should not be predominately soya sauce.
Make sure the capsicum is well cooked by cooking it with lid.
