There are some dishes with few ingredients, this is one of those. This is so simple and tastes good even with your left over rice. If you love olive and egg sure you will like it.

Ingredients :

Cooked rice - 1 cup
Olive - 4 tbsp sliced or chopped
Egg - 1 0r 2
Red chilli flakes - 1/4 tsp or according to spice level
Garlic - 1 minced or grated
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Salt as needed

Method :

1. Heat olive oil in the pan , add the grated garlic.
2. Then add the chilli flakes.
3. Now scramble the eggs by adding little salt.
4. Add the rice when it is slightly warm add the olive give a nice toss.
5. Add salt, note that olive has the salt too.
6. Serve piping hot....


Add Olives only at the end after adding it dont toss it for so long because it becomes soggy.
You can add black olives too.
If you dont eat egg just omit and add some veggies like carrot and cabbage.
If you love capers you can add to this.
Basmathi rice or Long grain rice is best suited for this rice. since I had so much sona masoori on that day I did with that.
