When you are in need of a quick carb boost, this is the dish! I lived on it while trekking in Nepal. It fills you up, can be made very quickly and tastes so good.

You can use any type of rice you like, although the dish will taste even better if made with cold leftover cooked rice — just make sure it isn’t cold and sticky.

I have added caraway seeds to this dish, for their unique complexity of flavour.
