Hi Friends,

My kids enjoyed it very much as i have added tomato sauce and sambhar masala which will add flavor in it and rajma/kidney bean and soya bean chunks will give you the soft texture so you don't need to take anything to accompany with it. But as per your individual choice you can serve it with your favorite sauce, chatni, raita, curd or any other side dish. So try it guys it will be a hit in your family. Here we go with the recipe.

Notes:-
  1. You can add more or remove onion, tomato and potato as per your choice.
  2. Use your favorite masala like chat masala, pao bhaji masala etc.
  3. You can add your favorite veggie in it but i wanted it to be legume based. 
  4. How much water should be used to cook rice depends upon so many things like quality of rice, size of vessel etc, so add water and cook accordingly.

HOPE YOU WILL LIKE IT
