Ginger Garlic Rice(Inji Poondu Satham)

After the travel everyone at home are at the advent of cold ad cough.I didn't have stamina to cook much..I wanted something hot and hence ended up  making this rice.To mention specifically this rice is a bland one and those who need very spicy food will not like this.It is very easy to make and also can be done within minutes when you run shortage of vegetables.Have it with any hot chutney,pickle,chicken curry..Then you will appreciate the flavour of the dish.
This rice goes very well the chicken kurma or with the vegetable kurma.It can be had only when it is hot.So make it hot and have it when u are running short of time and vegetables!!
My kids just love this rice and they love to have it with pappad.
