Chana Dal Fried Rice

This recipe is no way related to our regular Chinese Fried Rice. I came across this recipe in some television cookery show some 5 years before. Where they mentioned that this rice is prepared during Baby Shower / Semmandam / Godh Barai. I made this for two of my sister in law's baby shower along with other variety rice...This time its very special because i made it for my little bean inside me.

Rice - 1 cup
Carrot - 2 nos.
Beans - 100 gm
Cabbage - 50 gm.
Peas - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Sesame seed oil - 1 tablespoon
Coriander Powder - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon

To temper:
Mustard Seed - 1/4 teaspoon
Jeera  - 1/4 teaspoon
Curry leaves - few

To dry roast and grind:
Dry Red Chilly  - 3 nos.
Chana Dal  - 1 tablespoon.


Cook Rice and keep it aside.
In a pan dry roast red chilly and channa dal and grind it to powder.
Chop all the Veggies finely except peas.
Heat a pan with oil and temper with mustard, jeera and curry leaves.
Once it splutters add all the Veggies and saute until it cooks well.
Then add turmeric powder, coriander powder, grinded chana dal masala and saute till the raw smell goes off.
Add the cooked rice and sprinkle salt and mix well.
Now the rice is ready to serve.

It taste great with a cup of raita.
