Instant Masala Rice

My Sister in Law (husband's sis) used to make this for my husband and brother in law while they were in school/college, when they were just not in a mood to eat the regular rice, subzi and dal after school.


  • 2 Cups Rice (cooked or left over)
  • 1 Tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4-5 Green chillies, slit
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 4 Cloves
  • 1 inch Cinnamon stick
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Chopped Cilantro to garnish


  • Heat oil in a pan and add cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, green chillies,onion and fry till onions turn brown.
  • Add in the ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes,salt and fry till tomatoes are completely mashed,usually takes 3-4 minutes
  • Finally add the rice ans mix well.
