One more delicious and healthy one pot meal from my kitchen, again its a quick rice dish if you have some leftover cooked rice in your fridge..You can prepare this rice within less than 15minutes if you have all the ingredients we need for..Needless to say much about tofu, i never failed to buy whenever i go to our nearby chinese store and never failed to feed my teddies with them by adding them either in rice or in my bakes..This recipe goes for extra firm tofu cubes and frozen green peas,this rice doesnt need chopped onions or either ginger garlic paste..So if you are in hurry in the morning, this rice will gets ready very much quickly and suits prefectly to carry in your lunch box..Sending this catchy purple rice to to Healthy Morsels - Pregnancy,  my own event Healthy Diet-Easy & Healthy Lunch guest hosted by Jaya of Spice and Curry & SHMY HITS-Soya guest hosted by Prabha,event by Sangee. ..
