How to Make Quick Masala Rice

  • In a large pan, heat some oil.
  • When the oil is hot, cook the cumin, mustard, urad dal, channa dal and red chilli until they start sputtering.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste, the chopped tomatoes, garam masala powder and turmeric powder.
  • Cover and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Now add the cooked rice and some salt and mix it so that the tomato base coats the rice fully.
  • The tomato mixture should not be too watery otherwise the rice will become soggy.
  • If you have some cilantro, chop and add for extra taste.
