Make-over to the leftover rice - 'Rice-Tomato Omlette'

Rice-Tomato Omlette
We ladies normally have the ingrained habit of giving the leftover food a make-over. This is one such make-over of leftover rice, which reminiscing me of my granny. 

My granny (amma, we used to call her) once happened to visit her friend on Monday, which was her weekly fasting day and this dish was accidentally served to her. Amma, who herself was an excellent cook, couldn’t figure out that the dish had cooked rice in it.  Upon asking for the recipe, she realized that her fast was broken as there was rice & onions added in it. 

Nevertheless, though her fast was broken, she loved this omelette so much that this new recipe sought a place in our regular menu. So, she passed on this recipe to my mother and now on to me. I have added my innovation to the recipe. I am very glad to share this to all of my readers. 

I am sure once you try this, it will be a part of your regular diet.

1 onion chopped
1-2 tsp chilli powder (as per taste)

Method: In a bowl mix besan, rice flour, chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, salt, garlic-ginger-chilli paste together. To this add cooked rice, tomato, onion and coriander leaves and mix well.  Add water to form a batter. Adjust water quantity to form dosa batter like consistency.
Heat tawa and drizzle few drops of oil on the hot tawa and spread it well on the tawa. Pour the 1 ladle batter on the hot tawa and spread like thick dosa. Cover and cook for 1 min or till the side edges turn slight brown. Now drizzle few drops around the edges and cook for few seconds. Flip this omlette/dosa on the other side and cook it golden brown. Once golden brown on both side its done and ready to serve. Serve this hot, taste better with butter, tomato ketchup/ chutney.
One of the best ways to use your leftover rice. It’s like “Best out of Waste”.
