The Baby Corn and Capsicum Rice is so colourful that kids will immediately yearn to dig their spoons into the tiffin box when they see it! Not only is it visually appealing, but it appeases the appetite too as it contains a wholesome combination of rice and vegetables, flavoured excitingly with tangy tomato ketchup. This tiffin treat is very kid-friendly as it uses just a dash of pepper and chilli powder for spice, rather than chunks of ginger or green chillies that could bring tears to the young ones’ eyes! This lovely rice dish stays good for 4 to 5 hours, and can be carried for lunch by both kids and adults!
'I created this zippy side dish after eating something similar at a restaurant. It complements any Tex-Mex meal wonderfully,' writes Michelle Dennis of Clarks Hill, Indiana. 'Sometimes I add cubes of grilled chicken breast to the rice to make it a meal in itself.'
My husband is Chinese and I am Western. Between the two of us we came up with this recipe for fried rice that is actually a meal in a bowl. I can do this dish in well under half an hour, and that includes all the chopping. This dish is good for colds, depression, writer's block, stubbed toes, insomnia, heartbreak, religious crises and general crankiness. It can change your life. Yum.
