Kalan Soya pirattal sadam is a easy to make rice dish. Mushrooms and Soya are best protein suppliers for vegetarians. This is a super easy to make stir fry rice. The flavors from freshly ground pepper and jeera gives nice aroma to this rice dish. This can also be taken as a side dish for any Indian bread. Since mushrooms are high in water content they cook faster.
Nei pirattal sadham is a famous chettinadu recipe and served on most of the auspicious occasions. Kalan (Mushroom) is majorly used for this pirattal. I added some soya chunks which was leftover. Only ghee is used to make this dish which gives a fantastic taste. This makes a perfect lunch box dish for adults and for kids too. Easy to make lunch box rice dish in less than 30 minutes.
