Fried Leftover Rice/Toor Dal(pigeon pea/arhar)

Who doesn’t like gathering...”Atithi Devo Bhavah”  serve food , fruit juice and some skewed paneer…sound is good. After a great party what to do when you have white rice/Toor dal left in kitchen. Rice is very versatile and can consumed in many  ways like Rice pudding, Lemon rice, curd rice …I am making something different and I’m sure u haven’t come across this kind of recipe. I like to have @lunch also. Doctors keep warning use of left over rice.Leave worries behind,freeze the leftover rice and reuse it within 12hours otherwise it could give you a real food poisoning.


Rice (cooked)2 cup
Toor dal/arhar (cooked)1 cup
Green chilli2-3
Cumin seed1/2 teaspoon
Mustard seed1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves1 sprig
Oil20ml(aprox. 4spoon)
salt 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander leaves-to Garnish


  1.  Heat oil in a pan and prepare the seasoning with mustard, curry leaves, sliced green chili, and cumin seeds. Wait until chilly turn in to black colour(shouldn’t burn).
  2. Pour dal, salt and let it boil.
  3. Add rice and mix them well and keep it on a low flame .occasionally mix them, and see if its dry  well. You are done!
  4. Chopped  coriander leaves, garnish your platter and serve with mango pickle.
