Rice is a staple ingredient in many Indian households. It can be used in a wide range of dishes, from the simple dal chawal to quick fried rice, cheela, idli, and more. Sometimes, despite careful measuring, we end up making extra rice. Since food wastage is not an option, we try a variety of ways to give a delectable twist to the leftover rice. Some people use it to make desserts like kheer and payasam, while others eat it for breakfast or lunch the next day. If you fall into the latter group, we have two delectable leftover rice dishes for you. Parul, a food blogger and YouTuber, prepared these dishes on her channel 'Cook With Parul.'

Here's How To Make A Delicious Breakfast With Leftover Rice:
- To begin with, take a bowl, transfer the boiled rice, add chopped tomato, chopped carrot and chopped onion along with chopped green and red chilli. You can use any veggie according to your choice!
- Once done, add seasonings like pizza herbs, red chilli flakes, chaat masala, and salt to taste. Sprinkle some chopped onion on top. Then, take 4 bread slices (without edges) and dip them in the water. Squeeze the extra water out and add the slices to the rice mixture.
- Mix everything thoroughly using your hands. Note: You can add more bread slices to thicken the consistency.
- Now, place a pan on the stove and do not turn the flame on. Add a few drops of oil to grease the pan and then turn on the flame until the oil gets hot. Once done, turn the flame off, take a little portion of the mixture, and press it on the tawa in a circular motion. Cook from both sides and enjoy!
