Masala rice with green flageolets





This one can be prepared in a jiffy and it is quite healthy too as brown rice has been used instead of polished white rice. Brown rice is fibre rich and can make us feel full (so, that the quantity consumed will be less). Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients:
Brown rice (cooked) - 2 cup
Onions - 1 nos
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Aniseed powder -1/4 tsp
Green flageolets - 1 small tin
Salt for taste
Olive oil - 1 tbsp

Method:
Heat oil in a wok, add finely chopped onions and fry till golden brown. Add garlic paste and saute for a minute. Add green flageolets and stir fry for 3 min. Add chilly powder, garam masala powder, aniseed powder and give it a stir. Add boiled rice, salt for taste and stir well till each rice grain is well coated with masala. Serve hot

Note:
Oil and rice used may be of individual choice. I have used boiled rice and olive oil as it is a healthy option. Leftover brown rice can be used for the same.
