I got this Mexican rice recipe from Tarla Dalal. A must try recipe and easy to prepare....


Basmathi  rice  2 cups
Garlic cloves   4-5
Capsicum  1
Tomato 1
Vegetables like carrot, beans, cabbage etc (of your choice ) 1 cup
Onions 2 large
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Wash rice and soak for 15 minutes and drain.
Cut onions lengthwise and cut capsicum and tomato in cubes.

Heat one tbsp oil in kadahi and fry sliced onions till dark brown and crisp. Remove.
Fry Capsicum and tomato for few minutes and keep aside. 
Cook the veggies till they are done.
Heat 2-3 tbsp oil in kadahi and add crushed garlic. Saute. Add rice and fry till it gets the dark brown color. 
Add 4 cups water, salt and 1 tbsp ghee to the rice.
When the water starts bubbling reduce the heat to the minimum. Cover the lid. Allow it to cook for 10 to 15 minutes or till the rice is cooked.
Then add fried onion, cooked vegs, capsicum, tomato and chilli powder and mix thoroughly.

Serve hot  with Salad.
