Microwave Egg Pulao

Egg pulao or else egg rice whatever, i just love this simple rice prepared within few minutes in microwave oven and i can definitely say that you wont have any regret to try of this easy egg pulao..To give more colour to this egg pulao u can also add veggies of your choice, i didnt add any veggies except onions with spice powders like pepper powder, garam masala powder which turns this delicious pulao very much rich and a prefect lunch dish...I cooked basmati rice in microwave oven in high for 20 minutes and finally i ended with an awesome rice grains well cooked and separated...U can prepare this egg pulao when u have sudden guests too..This simple egg pulao can be served with simple onion raita or else with simple papads or chips...We enjoyed this egg pulao for our lunch, we just loved it...Obviously am sending this egg pulao to Srivalli's MEC (Microwave Easy Cooking)-Any dishes..

2cups Cooked Basmati rice
3nos Eggs
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1no Onion (chopped finely)
1tsp Ginger-garlic paste
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
2tsp Oil

I cooked basmati rice a day before in microwave oven for about 20minutes with few drops of oil...u can also prepare rice just half an hour u prepare the pulao and let them cool completely...Heat oil in a microwave safe bowl, add the cumin seeds and cook for 2minutes in high, add immediately the chopped onion pueces, ginger garlic paste, slit opened green chillies and cook everything in high for 12 minutes (stir in between)until the onions get cooked well and raw smells goes away...beat the eggs with salt and turmeric powder and cook in a flat plate as omelette in microwave oven for 5 minutes in medium...let the omelette get cool and slice it as small pieces and keep aside..

Now add this egg pieces to the already cooked veggies with pepper powder and garam masala powder, also add salt if needed and cook for 5 minutes, finally add the cooked basmati rice and toss gently until everything get well mixed..garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves..

Serve hot with any raitas!
