Podnicha Bhath(Seasoned Rice)

Podnicha Bhath is a receipe like 2 minutes maggi noodles.This is done with urlela bhath (leftover rice in marathi) in Maharastra called as Podnicha Bhath.If you have left over rice ..Go ahead doing this with other few ingredients.This is my contribution for Nupur'sRCI -Maharastrian cuisine.


  • Left over rice-1 cup

  • Oil

  • Mustard seeds

  • Onion-1 big

  • Green chillies -3 or 4

  • Curry leaves

  • Urid dhal/urid dhal

  • Turmeric powder-1/2tsp

  • Salt

  • Red chillies(optional)


Separate the rice with your fingers if necessary.

Heat a kadai with little oil,add mustard seed,urid dhal, chillies,curry leaves and cut onions.

Saute for a minute ,add turmeric powder and rice to the mixture ,stir fry for a couple of minutes and add salt to taste.

You can have as a variety rice plainly or with any side dish you like.

Even the same procedure with leftover poli(layered chapathi) is used to do as Podnicha Poli.
