Mint Flavored Vegetable Rice


This is not the proper vegetable rice. Just a faker. When hubby asked for mirchi ka salan (he rarely demands anything….poor thing), I was all set for that. I wanted to make his meal a simple and special one. So I decided to make this rice. A flavorful one.

More vegetables also could be added if required. But since the star of the lunch is mirchi ka salan…. I did a simple rice to go with the star. And lemme tell you, the pair is a hit. We both ended up eating than our regular limit. Hmm…..I just wished sonny was big enough to enjoy these…….but no hurries…..let him take his own sweet time. 😉

I was mindful of everything, I did in the kitchen. and the pic must tell the truth. The perfectness is just to see.
