You can never get bored of making this.I have been eating this since more than a decade and it still remains my favorite.
Flavor the rice with nice tangy sour tomatoes.Garnish them with cashews, peas or peanuts.
Same same but different?
Did you know there is a Mexican rice too?
There is also a similar version of this rice eaten in Mexico called the Mexican tomato rice.
The only difference being addition of vegetable/chicken stock and chipotle paste.
Quite a coincidence,I must say!
