2-3 cups leftover or precooked white rice (if you do not have and want to make this cook some rice quickly using a rice cooker and follow the recipe)
1 red bell pepper cut to small cubes
In a large pan/kadai heat oil, add the cumin seeds garlic paste and turmeric, half the curry leaves and cashew nuts. If you desire it to be more spicy add the garam masala (the garlic and cumin seeds render it enough flavor already). When the cashews turn lightly brown, stir in the peas, red pepper and sauté for 3-4 mins. As the pepper gets a little tender add the tomatoes and sauté another 2-3 min. Now stir in the rice and mix thoroughly and let fry on simmer for about 4 min. Adjust the salt and garnish with curry leaves
