Bhindi & Channa Masala Rice

I know how most of us will breaking our heads to come out a simple,quick and prefect lunch box dishes to our lil ones. But fortunately i dont need to pack foods for my lil one, instead of it i have to pack foods for my better half as he dont like to have his lunch in his office canteen. Obviously i have to cook almost everyday to pack him some healthy,quick,easy lunch dishes with veggies definitely. Two days back, i quickly prepared this yummy masala rice simply with bhindis and cooked channa aka chickpeas, trust me this combo works out wonder and my H happily carried this flavourful masala rice for his lunch and enjoyed thoroughly.Sending this delicious rice to my own event CWS-Chickpeas guest hosted by Kavi of Foodmania.



2cups Cooked rice
1no Onion (chopped)
12nos Bhindis/Lady's finger (chopped)
1cup Cooked chickpeas
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

To Grind:
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Channa dal
1tsp Peppercorns
1inch Cinnamon stick
2nos Cloves
2tsp Coriander seeds
3nos Dry red chillies

Heat few drops of oil, roast all the ingredients given in the list 'To grind',one by one until they turns golden brown, grind them as fine powder and keep aside.

Meanwhile heat few drops of oil in a pan, fry the chopped bhindis until they turn soft.

Heat enough oil, lets splutter the mustard seeds,urad dal, curry leaves, add immediately the chopped onions, saute for few minutes with salt until they turns soft..

Add the chickpeas, grounded powder and saute again for few seconds, now add the cooked rice,already cooked bhindis, toss gently everything until the rice get well mixed.

  5. That does look delicious... I'll try for my daughter... I usually use rasam powder or sambar powder to get a mild spiced dish for her so hopefully that will work instead of the powder you have.
