Vagharela Bhat ( Fried Rice)

Vagharela Bhat

If you're ever stuck for what to with left over rice, this is a yummy snack to make in a jiffy :)
When I was young, mum use to make this for us as an afternoon snack and I loved it. I use to eat it with tomato ketchup ( yes you read correctly lol) it was delicious and still is but now I eat it with a good dollop of plain yoghurt.

Leftover rice
tea spoon of turmeric
1/2 tea spoon of red chili powder
Pinch of asafoetida
1 tea spoon 3G paste
salt to taste
pinch of mustard seeds
stick of cinnamon
2 table spoons of cooking oil
Plain yoghurt to serve

Preparation Method:

Add oil to a large pan and heat on a medium heat.
Add mustard seeds and cinnamon stick to the oil and when the seeds start to sizzle add in the asafoetida.
Then add in your rice and gently stir through.
Sprinkle on the chilli powder, turmeric, salt and then add the 3G paste.
Give the rice a good mix( gently) until everything is combined and the rice has a lovely yellow colour ( add more for brighter colour)
Make sure the rice is piping hot before serving.
Enjoy with a dollop of plain yoghurt. Or ketchup :)
I hope you try this out :) you won't regret it.
