Festive Rice-1-3

Hey!  Welcome to my corner of the web!  Please follow me on InstagramFacebook and Pinterest!

Being born in a rice producing country means rice was and still is a big part of my diet.   Plain rice can become boring very quickly so every now and then I mix it up a bit.

Festive Rice-1-6 I called this Festive Rice because of the vibrant color from the curry powder and various vegetables; it’s not only pretty but pretty tasty.   It’s not fuss and quick to toss together and makes the perfect side dish.  I served this with pan fried tilapia(will be sharing this soon) and it was a hit!
