Mexican Vegetable Rice


 2 cups raw rice, washed

1 1/2 tbsps oil (I used olive oil)

1 1/2 cups chopped mixed vegetables

fistful of corn kernels (optional)

3-4 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp red chilli flakes

3/4 tsp cumin pwd

3 tbsps worchestershire sauce

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

2-3 tbsps tomato sauce

2 tbsps chopped coriander leaves

2 tbsps grated cheese (optional)

salt to taste


Heat olive oil in a cooking vessel, on medium heat and add garlic and onions and saute for 3 mts. Add the chopped vegetables and corn kernels and saute for 5 mts.

Add the red chilli flakes, cumin pwd, tomato sauce, worchestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and salt to taste. Combine.

Add the washed rice and saute with the rest of the ingredients for 4 mts.

Add 3 1/2 cups water and fresh coriander leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce flame to low and place lid. Cook the rice till done and do not stir inbetween. At this point, you can serve the rice as it is or you can place the cooked rice in a casserole, sprinkle cheese and bake for 10-12 mts in the oven). I served the rice without cheese.

Serve hot with potato wedges (boil potato wedges with skin and shallow fry in a skillet till nicely browned, sprinkle mixed dried herbs). Makes a complete meal.
