Egg Rice / Tomato Flavoured Masala Rice with Spiced Up Eggs – Leftover Rice Ideas / Lunch Box Ideas

This rice can be made within 20 mins..But it has full of flavour, I love it with some onion raita and my lunch will get filled..This is  a great recipe to put in lunch box…Kids will love it…Since the egg is spiced first it has some flavour too instead of bland plain eggs..

This is a great recipe to use leftover rice from the previous batch..You can add any vegetables in this like corn, capsicum, peas and anything..

Hope  you like it and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to BM Day 3 under the theme Seven Days of Rice…
