Do you take rice everyday? I do and everyone does in Malaysia.:) I prefer boiled rice with lentil curry, which you get in almost every restaurant here.  Only food aka tummy saver for vegetarians. I prefer rice because its saves time in cooking and of course its a part of our everyday meal.

So I cooked Mexican tomato rice last weekend . There were two reasons. 1. I didn’t want to spend more time in cooking. 2. I cooked Portobello mushrooms … You will get to know in my next post.

Trust me this recipe is a keeper. You hardly need to spend 10 minutes in preparation and it goes well with other side dishes like Enchilada or grilled food.
