As far as I remember, my mom had always told me, breakfast is the main food of the day; you should have your breakfast like a king. At home, of course that was maintained, but when am away I am always out of ideas to what to have for breakfast. Cornflakes and milk then becomes the best option. I am sure this happens to most of you.
On most weekends I wake up late and my breakfast becomes the luncheon. This was an easy and simple breakfasts come lunch I had on last Saturday, I hope you like it too. I had some rice left from last night and added some colorful vegetables to make it a sumptuous meal.
Preparation time: 7min Cooking time: 10min
- Rice (Bhat): 1 bowl
- Peas (Mator shuti): ½ cup
- Sweet corn (Bhutta): ½ cup
- Cauliflower (Ful kopi): 1 few florets cut into very small pieces
- Potato (Alu): 1 small, cut into small squares
- Oil (Tel): 2 tablespoons
- Cumin seeds (Jeera): ½ tablespoon
- Cashew nut (Kaju badam): 5/ 6
- Raisins (Kismis): 10 /12
- Wash all the vegetables well. Heat oil in a wok and throw in the cauliflower and potatoes
- Fry till they are half cooked and put in the peas and sweet corn, continue till the vegetables are cooked
- Keep aside the vegetables and pour in just a dollop of ghee to the wok
- Add the cumin seeds, as the seeds start sputtering, add the vegetables and rice
- Cook over low flame till the vegetables and rice are mixed well
- Garnish with cashew and raisins (if using) and serve hot
Hot Tips – If you want to add any other seasonal vegetables then go ahead and use it. The more the colorful the food, the more your kids will love it. While mixing the rice and vegetables together take care so that the rice grains do not break. You can have this with some side dish like Dimer malpua, Chal Diye Alu Dum.

Hi.. those who wanna try this receipe pls make a note that while adding rice into the pan, it (rice) should be dry. you can wash the cooked rice so that the sticky gum (maar, what we bengali ppl say) should washed away. It would make the rice non-sticky n a little moist with the vegetables.
Hii… will u plz tell that how to make fried rice without using onion/ garlic.. In case of bengali puja that kind of fried rice I have tasted, and that was really beautiful. plz send that recipe
