By default, on all my weekend, will be in confused mental state on what to be prepared for my Breakfast and Lunch time. If its my lazy weekend and my lil one was away from me, OMG ! totally will become a mental for sure :) The main my savior or remedy will be this easy, breezy, comforting rice bowl. Actually its a looted recipe from my H - grand ma's recipe. Noone can beat her taste including me. Mostly she use to prepare this for our breakfast but i loved to try this for my lunch time with a combo of onion raitha and Onion Pakoda. Even tried it on a weekend and here comes the procedure along with the clicks.
