Mexican Rice

This is a recipe I got from my Co-Sis. The first time I made we became a fan of it. So here goes the way I make this on a lazy sunday !!

Ingredients :

Rice -3 cups (Uncooked)
Onion -2 (finely chopped)
Onion -1 (Slit lenght-wise)
Garlic -3 pods
Capsicum - 2-3 (sliced)
Cabbage -1/2 Cup (finely chopped)
Tomato -1 (finely chopped)
Soya sauce - 2-3 tsp
Coriander leaves
Chilli powder-according to taste


1. In a pan, add 1 tbsp ghee, add slit onion, fry until golden brown. Add garlic (mash it a little) saute for 1-2 mins.
2. Now add rice, fry in ghee until pale pink. Add required water (about 2 cups) and pressure cook until 2 whistles
3. In a seperate pan add 6tbsp of oil, add chopped onions, fry and keep aside. In the same oil add cabbage, fry and set aside. Finally add capsicum and fry for just about a minute.Remove and set aside.
4. Now saute the tomato in the oil for a minute.(It should not become watery). Once done add chilli powder, salt and soya sauce. Add rest of the fried veggies and also the cooked rice.
5. Mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot with Curd/Raitha.
