Beans Masala Rice, I try to make it often to make the kids eat all the beans. Many of the kids give us a hard time eating veggies. One of my twin, always take time to pick and gather all the veggies in her plate in one corner.  Making this Beans Masala rice for the lunch box is the best way to make the kids eat the veggies.

Most of us pack rice for kids lunch box. For Lunch box, we always prefer variety rice instead of Sambar, Rasam or curd rice. So We usually make Lemon Rice, Tamarind Rice, Mint Rice, Pepper Rice. Those rice varieties are easier and quicker to make and kids will love it. My routine is to pack Idli, Paniyaram, Pasta, Roti, and Variety Rice and sometimes I keep poori with aloo instead of stuffed roti.

In this Beans Masala Rice, instead of adding store bought masala powders, we are going to roast the spices and grind it to powder and use this fresh powder as the spice for this Masala Rice. Try this version of Beans Masala Rice and share your comments!

Hi Sowmya,

It’s my pleasure to visit your website because it is full of a variety of recipes. I am a baker by profession and I love making a variety of food. I think if we add some dry fruits in this recipe it will increase its taste.
