Mixed Beans Tomato Rice

Mixed Beans Tomato Rice is a fibre and protein rich one pot meal. The dish is very nutritious. Rice is rich in starch, an excellent source of energy. Rice also has iron, vitamin B and protein. Beans also contain a good amount of iron and an even greater amount of protein than rice. I have mixed some of his favorite beans, along with basmati rice and some Indian spices tempered in oil with some mustard & curry leaves pairing turmeric and garam masala. It was really easy to prepare, tasty and a healthy meal. 


Cooked white Basmati rice - 2 cups
Mixed beans (Chick peas, Black-eyed beans, soya bean and anything else you like)
Onion - 1 medium, sliced thinly
Tomatoes- 2 small, chopped
Garlic - 2-3 cloves, finely chopped
Green chillies - 1-2, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp 
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp 
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp 
Few curry leaves
Oil - 2 tbsp


Wash and pressure cooked the beans for 10-15 minutes.

Heat oil in a large pot and add curry leaves and mustard seeds. Once they start to sizzle, add garlic, green chillies and sliced onions, saute till lightly browned.

Add tomatoes and cook for a few minutes till they begin to pulp. Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala powder and allow spices to blend well.

Then add cooked mixed beans and let cook for 5-6 minutes.

Mix in cooked rice and stir-fry till each grain is well coated with all the spices. 

Serve warm with Egg Curry Or Raita...
