A simple rice dish that can be prepared with fresh/leftover rice,that can be a change from the regular rice and dhal combo. When you are in a hurry to prepare a quick dish,or too tired to cook something elaborate try this one.Mom used to pack this in my lunchbox for a change.I love this with roast/fried potato curry and pickle esp.with mango thokku. This is also served as a part of festive treats and also distributed as prasad in temples.
