There is another easy method --We can do this in a pressure cooker also , for that heat the pressure cooker with litter water inside & then transfer the rice vegie mixture/gravy to a bowl (which fits inside ur cooker ) & keep inside the cooker & leave it for 2 whistles & 5 mins in simmer. Garnish it with roasted cashews ,raisins & coriander leaves....Serve hot with any spicy gravy , fry ,raitha.....

Note: Egg is optional .If u don't like it ,no need to add egg .......but give a try with egg it will surely give a extra taste ......
