Pav Bhaji masala rice and a simple banana Dog(Fruit carving)

This is My hubby's fav rice item and I learned it from him winter we will enjoy this rice item more...for the cold season the hot rice will be very tasty.......

Cooked Rice 2 cup( I have used normal rice)
Onion and tomato 1 each chopped
Tomato big 3(chopped)
Pav Bhaji Masala 3-4tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1ts
Mustered and turmeric 1/2 tsp each
fresh coriander 2 stand+for garnishing
curry leaves 6-7
cooking oil 6-7 tsp
Red chilly powder 1tsp(or as per spice)
salt to taste and sugar 1/2 tsp
Tamarind paste 1/2tsp(if tomato is sour then do not use tamarind paste)

Heat oil in a thick bottom pan,add curry leaves mustered and turmeric ,after a 30seconds add chopped onion and fry till it is light brown then add ginger garlic paste and chopped fresh coriander,saute for a min then add chopped tomato. Fry till tomato becomes tender then add pav bhaji masala(I have used MDH Pav bhaji masala) red chilly powder salt sugar and tamarind paste(use only if required)then mix well and fry for 3-4 mins .it should become paste by now..

Now add the rice and mix it slowly(the rice should be hot,freshly cooked rice will give good taste)

once u mixed completely ,when everything is mixted well turn of the heat and serve the hot rice immidiatly....

before serving garnish with tomato and fresh corionder..

Now about how the banana Dog looks like...

This is very simple and attractive food carving....
All you need is:
2Fresh Yellow banana
1Tooth pick
coloured pen(to make eye,use black or any other colour, I have used green)
To make Head:Take one banana,cut 1/2 of banana(cut on the side where the black dot is there)open the skin till 1/2 in that(by making 4 equal part of skin) and take out the 1/2 banana carefully from that. Cut the skin of 2 side(opposite sides)and fold the other 2 sides like ear of the dog and draw eyes by using coloured pen...

Now the head is ready,,,,so finally keep the another banana in rain bow shape and prik the head on the top (as shown in picture).......The Dog is ready..very easy right? why are you waiting.....get set go..
