Mexican Rice

  After  coming to Canada i got a chance to eat various cuisines, that's the advantage of working in a multi-cultural company. We have a pot luck quite frequently and i get to eat many food varieties. Sometimes its doubles from Trinidad and Tobago,Mexican rice and Burrito from Mexico,Quiche from Spanish colleagues,Pasta from Italy, Mac n Cheese from Canada and offcourse our humble Samosa.This Mexican rice is stuffed into the Burrito along with other suffing. First time when i ate Burrito i liked the flavour of the rice and it made me try this rice. It's a very simple and mild rice. 
Calls for very few ingredients and which you will have in your pantry at any given point of time.Here is the recipe


Rice 1 cup
Tomato 2 puree
Onion  chopped finely
Garlic 2 chopped finely
Cumin powder 1 tsp
Capsicum 1 chopped finely
Oil 3 tbsp
Salt to taste


Take oil in a pan. Add garlic and onions. Fry until onions changes colour.

Add the rice without water. Roast it for 3-4 minutes until all the water dries up.

Now add Capsicum,tomato puree and salt.

Mix well. Add 2 cups of water.

Sprinkle cumin powder.

Cover and cook in a low flame.

I served this rice with a dahi kadhi and capsicum fry. I know its a weird combination but nothing wrong in trying it..I call it a fusion....
