Fodnicha Bhaat | How to make Phodnicha Bhaat

Fodnicha Bhaat

Fodnicha Bhaat or Phodnicha Bhaat as it is also called is a simple dish you can make with leftover rice. This is a perfect one to carry for Lunch box as well.

Since rice is eaten in a majority on a daily basis, there is always a possibility of excess on hand. That’s when you will think about how you can recycle it for the next meal. In my home, if it was to be overnight, then we mostly make Ragi Sangati. Athamma said she used to make Chitrannam or Lemon Rice.

So when I was checking out the dishes for F, I came across this interesting version of the dish made in Maharashtra and is called fodnicha bhaat / phodnicha bhaa, which literally means seasoned rice. It is a simple and quick dish to prepare and a great way to recycle leftover rice.

As I read it is also served for breakfast. However, I packed it for Konda’s lunch and she liked it as well. The preparation is very simple and if you are making fresh rice, it might be soft and you will end up getting a clamped up dish. So leftover or dry cooked rice is best for this.

Fodnicha Bhaat is my choice for EC in the AtoZ Quick Under 30 Minutes, which is my theme in the Biryanis, Pulaos, Khichdis and Mixed Rices, where I am doing Quick Under 30 Minutes Meals. If you want to read some elaborate Biryanis, check out what I have for F in Spice your Life!
