Peppered Mushroom Rice

Preparing a lunch box everyday is definitely a tough task to every mom, thank god that i never had such hassles in my life till now. Apart from packing foods for my better half i never had a chance to pack foods for my kids. However i will be posting some easy breezy,lunch box friendly dishes for this week's blogging marathon. My theme for this week's blogging marathon is Kid's delight - Lunch box in 30 minutes. And all my three dishes for this week's theme are going to be some simple dishes you can pack very well in your kid's lunch box as well. And am kick starting this week's theme with an easy breezy pepper flavored mushroom rice which calls for simple ingredients.

Mushroom pepper rice

Flavoured with roasted pepper and cumin powder, this rice dish takes hardly less than 15 minutes if you have cooked leftover rice in your fridge. No need of onions or any other sauces like soya sauce, ketchup or chilly sauce. Just pepper and cumin powder is quite enough to flavor and bring the spiciness to this rice.Eventhough this rice dish doesnt need any side dish, you can still serve this dish with some chips or boiled eggs. If you want to go with other vegetables than mushroom, do mix and match the vegetables of your choice.

Mushroom Rice, Pepper Mushroom Rice

2cups Cooked rice
