ABOUT Bhutay ko baath (fried rice) with Kalo (black) channa- a popular Nepali comfort food RECIPE

This dish is much loved in many Nepali households and is a filling breakfast meal or anytime of the day. It is a very simple dish to cook, the flavour and taste will convince you that some of the best food at times taste delicious when it's uncomplicated! I grew up eating this dish and learnt to make it from my mom who still dishes it up for breakfast most days. This Nepali comfort food won't be found in any restaurant or hotel, it is something which people cook at home when there is left over rice (baath) from the day before.

Ingredients Serving: 1

  1. 1/2 cup kalo (black) channa (soaked overnight)
  2. A bowl of left over/ cooked rice
  3. Patanjali ghee (or any other brand)
  4. salt as per taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a non-stick pan, you can also use a 'kharai' if it is more convenient.
  2. Add a generous amount of ghee to the pan, you can also use oil but it will taste better with ghee.
  3. Next, add a handful of kalo (black) channa to the pan, add a pinch of salt and fry till it becomes firm. Cover the pan with a lid while it cooks. (I would advise you to soak the channa overnight so it becomes nice and soft)
  4. Once the channa has become a bit crunchy, add a bowl of rice into the pan and mix well with the channa. (you can use freshly cooked rice however I would advise you to use left over rice from the day before for best taste results.)
  5. Add a generous amount of salt and fry till it becomes crispy on the bottom.
  6. Once it becomes crispy on the bottom, stir it well so it becomes crispy proportionally. (If you like a more crunchy consistency then you can let the rice fry for 2 minutes extra on a moderately high flame.)
  7. Serve it hot for best taste.
