Tomato Peas Rice Recipe| Rice Recipes

When i dont post something on a blog, it nearly kills me. Its an addiction or you can even call it obsession. Well thanks to Mr. P. And when the internet doesnt co operate i feel like doomsday is nearing. I take it out on every single soul around. Maybe the next time i should take it out on that unpretentious yet evil looking modem on the table in the far corner. That said and having vented out, the sunny side of the whole situation was that i cooked a lot. Taking it out on my kitchen you see. I almost tormented my poor husband by going on and on about how many recipes i ve perfected and how many more food props i shall be needing. Mr. P promptly got intimidated, annoyed and at the same time offered to take me shopping to shut me up!! Duh..
          So what did i cook while i did not blog?? Made some yummy spinachy soya delight, rajasthani kaddu and this rice. Will post the other recipes soon. In the meanwhile, make some of this yummy rice and enjoy it for a dinner.

Looks delicious. Love your hubby way of making it up to you. I wish mine will do so instead of saying why dont you go shopping? Well maybe he is fedup after tagging along for the last 23 yrs. :D

Lovely rice though.
