Tomato Peas Rice | Easy Lunchbox Recipes

Deciding what to make for hubby's lunch box is becoming a big headache for me these days. Its like cooking for a kid. He needs variety it seems. I make paruppu, rasam, sambar, curd rice and then any kinda variety rice for the week in that order, but he comes back in the evening complaining about the food. Says he can easily predict what will be in the dabba for the day... That being said, on days when I wake up late in the morning, I go for some easy variety rice option like this tomato peas rice. And for side I keep some potato chips which is a pantry staple in my household. Its easy to make and the lunch can be packed in half an hours time.

~*What U Need*~
Onion - 1, large
Tomato - 2, medium
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Garlic - 2 cloves, finely chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp, chopped

Peas - 1 /2 cup, cooked and drained
Cooked Rice - 2 cups
Salt, Oil

How I Made it:
Cook the peas for 1 whistle and drain it, set aside. In a kadai, heat oil, temper with mustard seeds, curry leaves and urad dhal. Add the garlic and saute for a minute or two. Add the sliced onions and saute till brown. Add the tomatoes and cook till mushy.

Add the spice powders and cook well. Now add in the drained peas and season with salt.

Add the coriander leaves and remove from flame. Now add the cooked rice and mix till evenly combined.

Serve warm with side dish of choice!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
