The use of vibrant red chilli flakes, mealy kidney beans, peppy capsicum and pungent garlic make the Mexican character of this dish very clear indeed. This rice delicacy is made without oil, and using brown rice instead of white to enhance the fibre content. Moreover, lots of fibre-rich and nutritious veggies are also added to this version of the Mexican Rice to help control blood sugar levels and make this a diabetic-friendly recipe.

Concept of making Mexican rice with lots of veggies and my favourite pulse Rajma..without using oil...is an amazing idea. This rice is loaded with Vitamins and Minerals. Well, to make it more healthy....you can try making it with brown or red rice.
