Kadai Palao

Running out of time or feeling lazy to cook Rice, Dal & a side dish I prefer Kadai Palao... :)

Rice - 1 Cup (Cooked)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Ginger-Garlic - 1 tbsp (Freshly Crushed) instead can use paste..
Onions - 1 Large (Sliced Finely)
Mixed Vegetables - 1 cup ( I used beans, carrot, green peas)
Tomato - 2 Medium ( Chopped into small cubes)
Salt - to taste
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 1 tsp

  1. Soak and cook rice till done. Fluff up the grains in a large plate and cool slightly.
  2. In a kadai, heat oil. Splutter cumin seeds and add the freshly crushed Ginger-Garlic.
  3. Fry onions till they slightly brown. 
  4. Add the tomatoes and cook for a minute.
  5. Add the chopped vegetables and saute for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Now add & mix turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt to it and cover it for 2 minutes.
  7. Now add the cooked rice and toss them twice or thrice till the rice mixes with the vegetables.
  8. It's ready to be served. 
  9. Serve it with Onion Raiata or simply curd... :)
