Rice is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with and eat too. This particular rice dish doesn’t include so many ingredients. It has your basic ginger, garlic and green chili. Cauliflower tossed in garlic gives it a really mellow flavor. The Sriracha sauce on the other hand has the correct amount of spiciness which blends well with the rest of the ingredients. Do give it a try. It is really easy to prepare.Continue reading “Stir-Fried Rice with Sautéed Cauliflower in Sriracha Sauce”

So if you’re on a diet WATCH OUT, and as far as kids are concerned; they will definitely enjoy it. 😉Continue reading “Broccoli Rice with Cottage Cheese in Chilli Garlic Cream Sauce”

Mushrooms and rice go really well together. You can add various other vegetables like green beans, carrots, cauliflower, etc. to make a different version of your own. I usually don’t like to keep a fixed recipe. Most of the times I add ingredients according to my taste buds at that point of time. That way one can come up with fresh recipes every single time. Hope you all like this one. 🙂

As I had mentioned in my earlier post, I would be sharing a recipe from the Authentic Mexican Recipe Book I had won. So, here I am. 🙂 It took a while for me to pick one, out of so many delicious recipes. I realized I didn’t have any rice based dishes on my blog. I turned to the rice section of the book and picked out this lovely tomato rice recipe.
The rice is bursting with different flavors. You will get to taste the tanginess from the tomatoes with a hint of chili. In addition to that onion, ginger and garlic form the basis of the dish. You can add your choice of vegetables. I did not follow the exact recipe form the book. Although, I have attached the original recipe from the book towards the end.Continue reading “Mexican Tomato Colored Rice”
