Hi...It`s 30 th today..How soon completed 6 months??only one more month to celebrate birthdays of my two kids..Yesterday,while searching for birthday special cakes Mahadev came near to me and a spider man cake pic attracted him..Within seconds he stated shouting for that cake and then i checked out few videos in youtube..I felt that with some cocentration and patience can make it if tries carefully..Let`s see...I have one month time to get some ideas and tips about decoarting.
Coming to the recipe,It is a easy tofu rice with capsicum and pepper combination...Actually,a very long time back I shared a capsium rice recipe..There I used mutli color capsicums and chili powder.But here for a variation I added fresh tofu cubes which are tossed with black pepper.If you want a plain rice use triple color capsicums and call it as bell pepper rice,other wise use tofu and cook with help of this step wise pictures..Here fresh black pepper powder gives a nice flavor and hot taste to the rice.I used freshly cooked basmati rice,but you can go with left over or normal rice too..It is a very simple rice and you no need tomatoes or any spice masala powders.This easy and quick rice goes well in lunch and also for lunc boxes.Try this and enjoy.. I had this rice with spicy potato fry and curd..It`s yummy..
