Egg Rice | Mutta Rice | Muttai Sadam | Easy Lunch box recipes

This is one of the most nostalgic lunch box dish from my school days for me ! In fact for my sister as well. This was her most favorite lunch that she liked to take to school :) Now Dhruv also likes this rice ;) Cute right :D This is very easy to make and will be ready in a jiffy and also fancy, heavy and protein packed for a lunch box.. You can have it as such or can also pair it up with raita or pappad. You can make it dry or little juicy based on your taste. If you do not like it dry, don't saute the eggs much and also make sure that when you cook the rice it's not very dry and for that adjust the water accordingly. If you have not made this rice before, try it out soon coz it's not gonna disappoint you for sure :)

Recipe Source: Ma

Serves: 3-4 persons

I Took: 

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

I Used:

Basmati Rice (uncooked) - 1 cup
Egg - 1 no  
Oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1 no (medium sized - finely chopped)
Tomato - 1 no (medium sized - finely chopped)
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Salt - As Needed

The Way:

1. Rinse the rice in water and cook them as you normally do. I used basmati rice here and have taken water and rice in the ratio of 2:1 and have pressure cooked for 1 whistle. You can steam cook the rice or pressure cook it, as per your convenience

2. Chop finely the onions and tomatoes and keep aside. In a wide pan, heat oil

3. Add the chopped onions and salt and saute. The onions should turn translucent. Then add the ginger-garlic paste and saute. Leave it about for 2 minutes, sauteeing in between, for the raw smell to go

4. Now add the chopped tomatoes and saute again. The tomatoes should turn mushy

5. Add the pepper powder and give a quick stir. Adjust pepper powder according to your taste

6. Now break and add the egg and saute like you do for the scrambled eggs

7. Once the egg is cooked and mixed well, switch off the flame. Add the cooked rice to it and mix well and evenly

Serve with raita or pappad or can be had as such as well :)
